  1. Good luck with the reholder...I sent a coin back to NGC at their request due to a foreign object in the slab. They didnt remove this object and reslab as they said they would. It was just returned to me with pretty much 'tough' as the answer.
  2. Yes that's the case, the lens is at the same angle as the block so the coin appears 'flat' and lined up to the lens. This means I can get more light from the lamp.
  3. Happy to try and help. I spoke with @Paulus for a number of hours in then past about this. I use black neoprene as the back ground as its chemically inert. I use a desk mounted day light led lamp I use from another hobby (28mm war gaming) as the light source. I have my DSLR camera on a tripod with a macro lens. I then place the neoprene on a wooden block cut at an angle that allows me to position the light source directly over the coin but leave the coin flat in relation to the camera lens. I usually take 4 or 5 shots of each side and decide which is the best before cropping them down and joining them.

  19. The machines are so expensive as there is a global shortage of chips at the moment so GPUs with a RRP of say 500 are commanding prices well in excess of that. I asked how do you mean as in, do you mean how do they mine or why a GPU heavy rig. Check out the Bitcoin video the BBC made. BBC Bitcoin
  20. How do you mean? If your on about how they mine then rigs like this are GPU heavy as modern graphics cards are far better at mining crytpo. The more transactions the can handle/solve/mine the more chance they will earn some crypto.
