20x Magnified Loupes For Coin Collecting
As many investors know, identifying wear on the surface of a coin is key in classifying its grade. Yet while scratches, nicks and other imperfections depreciate the value of a coin, detecting damage and even counterfeits can be close to impossible with the naked eye alone. The Loupe is therefore one the chief tools used for grading, assessing and even admiring your valuable investment.
The lens--which takes its name from the Latin word for lentil--is an optical device used to channel and refract light, bending its beams and forcing them into a point. Some of the lens’ earliest roots can be traced to the 3000-year-old Assyrian Nimrud Lens, rock crystals that harnessed sunlight, starting much-needed fires. After three millennia, the lens is used in innumerable ways: compact discs, microscopes, eyeglasses, lasers, cameras, contact lenses, telescopes and of course the numismatist’s Loupe.
