Magnifying Glass

Is there a specific brand magnifying glass that is best for coins?   I bought a jeweler's loupe magnifier that is actually disappointing and went back to a handheld that's been ok but I'd really like to find a good one that is great for coins.

Many people consider Zeiss the best. That's what a lot of the TPG graders use. However, they are rather expensive.

I like my $20 Belomo. Does well enough with very little distortion around the edge of the lens.

I use an Eschenbach 3 6 9...very good for looking at the details.  However i always look at the coin straight up without any magnification first.  Look at it both sides and then at an angle. then go in with the loop for the fine details.
