All collectors should have a good coin magnifier. Coin collecting magnifiers help save the strain of viewing tiny details and are invaluable when grading coins, checking for mint errors, varieties and detecting counterfeits. Exactly what type of lens to use depends on personal preferences as we carry standard to digital coin magnifiers. The more power you have the more details can be seen. However, higher powers generally provide a smaller field of view. For example, many collectors prefer the Anco 16X Jewelers Loupe. It provides a high degree of magnification with minimal distortion, and it fits in your pocket.
