Dennis Tucker of Whitman Publishing forwarded this request for assistance on an upcoming publishing project.
Whitman Publishing is looking for sharp, high-resolution photographs or scans of “problem” coins to illustrate in upcoming books. Hobbyists who share their images will be credited in the books’ acknowledgments.
“Most of the time we show Mint State pieces with strong details, to give our readers a good understanding of each coin type or die variety,” said Whitman publisher Dennis Tucker. “But coins with problems can be educational, too.”
The publishing firm is looking for coins with: PVC damage; bag marks; scratches; edge bumps, nicks, or dents; holes; or extreme wear.
Image files should be at least 300 dpi at two times actual size. Scans and cell-phone photographs are acceptable as long as the image is high-resolution and clearly illustrates the coin’s problem.
Collectors with images to share can contact Dennis Tucker at email@example.com.
This is something I'm sure most of us could contribute to in some fashion or other. Please reach out to Dennis if you think you might have useful item for illustration.
