Just adopted a g date. Serial number 97. It's all matching except the clip. This is my first time to upload pictures. Hopefully it'll workout!! Came with a 1937 dated holster that's in the photos. My camera won't focus on the proofs. What is the white substance that you guys are using to bring out the proofs?

Les,
I took all the photos you suggested before I posted the 2 pics that got through. My camera wouldn't focus on the proofs. I'm new with the camera and am trying to work through the operator errors :). Also I asked what some of you guys used to white the proofs? I'm currently working on doing the proof shots again. It's a all matching piece. Except for the clip.

thanks for the input. I need it to learn!!

Hi Jeff,

Some collectors use "lacquer stik" from Brownell's.

Check to see if your camera has a "macro" setting for closeups. Also check your owner's manual to see what the minimum focus distance is. For best pictures use strong indirect light. If you don't want to build a light box, try outdoors just as the sun is going down when there are no shadows.

Hope this helps.

Regards, leon

Jeff, if you have a zoom lens on the camera, zoom out all the way. Now you should be able to move the lens of the camera real close to the mark. You might have to move yourself, away fron or closer to. Should be able to get good shots like that.
