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.

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.
