This photo of the Lincoln Memorial on the back of a penny was taken at 10 times normal size (or 10X) with a Wolfe 1.3 megapixel digital stereomicroscope. The structure measures 1.5 centimeters on a penny. This type of microscope is used to study the detail of small 3-D objects, the light can shine on the upper surface or from below. It is possible to see President Lincoln in the center of the memorial and the tiny building details at this magnification.
