Re: Alberta 75th and 100th Anniversary

I have an 8MP Olympus point and shoot camera, I set it on super macro so that I can get a photo at about 3 inches. For the super shiny coins I built a light box by cutting the top and bottom off a 4L milk jug and shine an led light in from the side. The photos I submitted are un-retouched only cropp...

Re: 1982 50 cent Large beads with damage

1982 50 cent Large beads with damage

Going through some coins today and came across this 1982, while checking for large or small beads I noticed that both sides have damage in the lower right area. Does anyone have an explanation for this?

Re: 2012 HMS Shannon Obverse

Thanks Troubadour
That's what I thought too, but can't figure out the rust. I think I will try a little alcohol on it.

2012 HMS Shannon Obverse

Has any one else run into this? It looks to me like the plating has rubbed off and it is starting to rust.

1943 Tombac

Picked this up a while back thought it was probably post mint damage but looking at it closer today I noticed what appears to be a cud on the A. Any thoughts on what could cause this?
