Thanks. It is not a perfect coin with die slippage to right on Obv and slight wear on Rev, but as natural as they come !

I love it !!

Superb piece. Obv as struck. Rev has a slightly romantic sand castle quality. As you rightly used heavy shadows to accentuate the detail, the lip actually helps bring out the depth in the picture. A piece of culture.
