  1. Thank you! Art,you can adjust for your eye the diopter adapter located near the wiewfinder on most of DSLR's and then you can attach a magnifier to the viewfinder. Olympus has a thing like this named Varimagni :http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000FLIW9U/ref=olp_product_details?ie=UTF8&me=&seller= As I know and Nikon, Canon, etc have similar focus finders available.
  2. I am a big fan of old Olympus OM cameras, I used to have up to 6 different models at a time (now I have "only" 3...). Not long time ago I purchased an old bellows system for macro photography, with a dedicated 50mm f 3.5 Zuiko lens. Not in very good looking shape, but fully functional, and I tested it once with one of my film cameras. As a digital camera I have an Olympus e-620 wich I bought thinking about my good old zuiko lenses. I use them on my digital camera with an adapter. Yesterday I adapted the bellows to the digital camera and I made some test shots on the coins with natural sun l

  6. I just put up for sale ( at 1 euro start price) some Poland 3 Groschen Sigismund III on ebay.de One is extremely interesting, it's 1608 Vilnius. Holed, but still lovely looking: ebay Nr: 170709403187 or: http://cgi.ebay.de/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=170709403187#ht_500wt_1202 This is a one-per-year chance to see one for sale.

  7. I found this interesting coin on french ebay: http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53200-19255-0/1?icep_ff3=2&pub=5574633083&toolid=10001&campid=5335826004&customid=&ipn=psmain&icep_vectorid=229466&kwid=902099&mtid=824&kw=lg&icep_item=140597966227 I think the coin is a fake.

  9. And I saw it, but I think that's another modern "novodel" but not only because of the "80":and the suspect colour like artificial patina, and the position of letters in KOPIEKI.

  13. In the past five years I've built up a 300+ pieces collection of 1917-1923 german emergency coins. Many "regular" notmunze, worth of 3-4$ each, some slightly up (10 - 20$) and only few of them worth 60-80$. When I started to collect them the only criteria was to have as many different as possible. Even if they are made of zinc, aluminum or iron, they are very beautiful "coins"... At this moment I'm at the point of selling the collection, because I am with my girlfriend in a 6 months trip in US, and we need money for traveling. We are in NY now, but we plan to fly to Atlanta and from there t
  14. Nobel. Just like the prize!
  15. Interesting variant! I've had one with a missing 3 from 3 kopeks, but this missing 2 is the first I saw...
  16. German colonial era coins are my dream coins. But because some of them are untouchable for me, my response here is: British predecimal coins. Superb examples of the Imperial strength.
