A Few Roman Emperors


Recommended Posts

I don't even recognize the style. I suspect its modern.

I can't find anything on the next that resembles it. How modern are we talking? It appears authentic in the hand, but as I said, I have no experience. This only serves to pique my interest, if you guys cannot recognise it, maybe it is rare? :ninja:

 

Fingers crossed!! I'll let you know if I can uncover further...

Possibly, but I can guarantee with 99% confidence that the piece in question is not Roman.

On the reverse, it appears to say [CIV]ITAS RENGHT, which would refer to a city called "RENGHT" (???)

The obverse appears to refer to a FERDINAND, which isn't exacly a name I'd expect to see on something Roman.

Some fantastic pictures Bill.

 

This type is my favorite.

How do you show it small but with a magnifying glass to zoom in? is that done on Flicker?

 

Although I like the mirror image in real coin orientation I think it makes the image look a bit over crowded.

I.think the zoom feature is happening in your browser. The various image sizes are produced in flickr depending on the size of the image you upload. Linking to the largest image sizes it to your browser with the magnifying capability. That doesn't happen when you are on flickr so the page you start from may have some control over how your browser displays the image. I really don't know for sure.

Cool thanks. What kind of camera set up do you use? your pictures are very clear.

Hi guys,

 

I am new to this numismatics caper, but I am excited by my first acquisition!! :ninja:

 

I bought this coin whilst overseas for $25 in a Syrian souk, it looks in pretty good condition (hoping it is not a fake). The peddler said it dates back 100AD, can anyone shed any light on my purchase?

 

Thanks so much in advance.

 

Paul

I think I recognise this. It looks like a coin of Ferdinand of Naples, from the 15th/16th century.

 

It has the same sort of portrait: http://www.vcoins.com/ancient/calgarycoin/...?idProduct=3761

 

I hope this helps somewhat.

I use a Nikon D70 with a 60mm f/2.8 Micro lens. Images are shot on a copy stand with axial lighting. I use the computer to manage the camera setting and trip the shutter to minimize vibration. Images are then processed and assembled in Photoshop.

I do think you've found the right place to look.

How interesting! i found your topic discussing the process of preparation, photographing and presentation of your coins as inspiring as the results, which are very impressive indeed. Absolutely stunning!

i am a mere amateur myself, However i feel most enthusiasts at the start of thier relationship with 'the coin' vary broadly.

Only as the relationship matures through time and experience do we begin to focus more narrowly yet with clarity on what area of collecting we truly want to specialise in.

 

After having examined your photos i would suggest that you might frame a selection for sale as well???
