This coin has a nice broad flan and the condition is not bad either.
Please share any examples of this type you have.

Not nearly as nice as yours, but here a quick snapshot of two of mine side by side for comparison.

Thanks a lot. Would love to see your specimen.

Thanks a lot for sharing. There are so many varieties among these dams , posting multiple specimens in the same thread can some times help find these varieties which might have been missed in the past.

Hello Bhushan,

Could you please share any tips on photographing a coin, I really like your photographs(color and the detail).
Do you use some kind of setup for this ?


Thanks
Prem

Prem, check out this thread in our Scanning, Photography and Image Manipulation Board:

http://www.worldofcoins.eu/forum/index.php/topic,17950.15.html

Check page 2 for pic of my set up. This process is a learning experience. I recently changed the orientation in which I photograph the coins. I now lay the coin on a flat surface and photograph it from the top. I still use 2 lamps as the light source.

Nice well struck coins, here's mine
Nice one.

Thanks Bhushan,
I will try the setup and will let you how that worked.

Do you place the two lights at 450 angle,
And what about the white balance ? Do you use custom white balance or just leave it in auto?

Thanks

Normally placing the light at 450 angle works but depending on the type of coin and metal some times you have to play around with the placement of light. I use florescent lamps so I leave the white balance on auto. I do use the manual shooting mode though for controlling the aperture, shutter speed and ISO.
