Very well captured, Robert, and what an interesting collection you must have. Carol
I have around 40+ ancient coins...not a big collection!
These ancient coins are expencive so i buy when i can afford it.
My collection i will give to my children later.
The coin above is a small coin (Silver),around 16mm and weight 3,9Grams.I tried to find some info,history of this Appius Claudius Pulcher, T. Manlius Mancinus and Q. Urbinus. 111-110 BC ,..but i found nothing.
WOW! that is old, I will give you 20p with no date for it Robert, Lol, most interesting hobby, we along with thousands queued to view the "Staffordshire Hoard" and we thought that was old (7th century") puts that coin into perspective..
I didnt know you were a coin collector Robert, interesting subject especially when they are this old, my two sons collect but their collection is quite modern in comparison, good picture
The light brings out the detail well
brilliant work Robert
How brilliant to have something this old. If only it could talk And what a wonderful thing to have for your children. Lovely shots. Moira
It appears to be in excellent condition for something which presumably was well used and so very ancient. Superbly captured in this image with great light and details. Fascinating to see.
A beautiful coin, with all its details
Two wonderfully detailed shots, well taken. What a lovely old coin too!
A very nice coin to have
Interesting shot. Its collectable image of a collection. Love the tone.
Very well captured rob .... kaz
Metal structure is clearly visible, detail is exquisite. Brilliant set.
Lovely detail in this. I wonder if this would be a good candidate for layer stacking - which I am lousy at but trying to accomplish. Just a thought.
The trouble with macro photography is that the depth of field is very shallow. In this macro photograph, the bottom of the coin is out of focus as a result, because the bottom of the coin is closer to the lens than the top and, unfortunately, the depth of field does not extend that close to the lens. If you were to photograph the coin square on, so that it appears circular in the viewfinder, then all of the coin would be in focus, because all of the coin is the same distance from the lens.
Captured well but agree with Peter here Robert, good tip,
enough classic detail Robert
Amazing.Great to have something that is so old and has so much history
