Yeah, and from what I understand the US Mint has sold out (of the proofs, at least).
Wife found this one on evil bravo alpha yankee.

I tried to order but it read "Product is unavailable".

I guessed I missed out.

The maximum size you should be using is about 800 to 900 horizontal lines.

They down loaded fast enough for me as I have three T-3 lines connected to my network.




Paul,
While futile, I did attempt to redeem myself in the original post (hence shitty photo comment).
Not all folks here are computer/gun/camera/cropping/jackofalltradesincludingthekitchensink geeksquad experts. Understand that I'm included in that group. And a quick learner

Very good looking coins. Congrats on scoring one!

Here's a cropping I did with the software that came with my camera. I didn't even bother resizing, so it's still a bit big. You're pics have great composition though. But I couldn't see it until I saved them and saw them a bit smaller.




Just play around with your software. If it's good stuff then it'll be a breeze to crop/resize pics.

I got one of those from my father-in-law for Christmas. Pretty cool!
