Default Jewelers Loupe?

Ive recently purchased quite a few Serial #d Cards of Top Prospects. I want to send the Best of the Best in for grading.

My question is, what is the Best Jewelers Loupe to use for close inspection of the Cards and their Corners? There are 100s of different kinds for sale on eBay, Im just not sure which is the Best for the use that I want!

I believe I have the best one in the industry. It is freaking awesome. I got the tip from a good friend who is a grader. I saw him using it and had to have one., IT rocks!!

I do too. It works good too. There is no comparison. Not even remotely close in the way I can see the cards with this loupe vs my cheap one. It also has a black light and LED light built into it. But hey, my Civic gets me to where I want to go just as well as my wifes LandRover. BTW, I have about 2-3 other magnifying devices too and this is hands down the best. I don't own stock in the company so it doesn't matter if anyone buys one or not. But it is a great recommendation for those in the hobby a whole lot. And my 3 dollar one still does ok too...I just don't use it any more...Whomever gets one of these will thank me later

ps...his question pertained to which is best.

I use a 4 inch magnifying glass on a stand with built in led lights from walmart. It also had a nickel size 10x magnifier built in which is great for looking at corners. A lot quicker than my loop.
