I guess if you are going to read from a script, at least have the script set up so you are looking into the camera.
Just trying to provide a helpful hint. This video look amateurish.
BTW, met the President of NGC at the show, he was a very nice guy and graded some coins for me on the spot.
I think NGC graded coins are underrated.
