Coins that have too reflective a surface are difficult to photograph at times. Even in indirect sunlight, legends come out unreadable and fine details such as hair are not captured. In these circumstances, I find it helpful to place my palm between the coin and the sun.

The CD spindle proved too small for Catherine the Great's massive 5 Kopek. A 15 lb macebell was an apt substitute! Will photograph it tomorrow as the daylight has faded.



Edit: Worked pretty well.  :)
