    Congratulations DJ on another gold coin, of course like everybody else, awaiting a nice photo, but I hope the feeling of seeing that gold lasts a lifetime for you as one of your happiest moments.

Hard to tell from the photo, but its in great condition. Its nice to finally have something good to post, its been a while.
    I thought i saw my ex the other day but the gal i saw didnt have a mattress on her back and a beer in her hand.
    LOL...
    sell the coin and get a better camera...LOL

    You need to find the macro button on your camera (Practically all camera´s, especially digital), have one, then you can take pictures up close without the blurring !!

    Yea, should be a picture of a flower... Set it to that, also try backing the camera away from your shot. Some digital Cameras you have to press and hold the button halfway to auto focus.

    Keep @ it and HH!!

    Re: Gold Coin From Last Weekend: Updated Pics

    I used a scanner, and as you can see I'm still challenged by the sizing thing. Anyway, at least you can see the detail on the coin.
    The only ones for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the sky.

    Now that's one heck of a find, and to think this is your second gold coin in two and a half years. I should come over there and take lessons from you!

    Re: Gold Coin From Last Weekend: Updated Pics

    That's a beautiful Veiled Head. Can you tell us which mint it's from? Should have a little letter under the horse's rear hoof. Unless it's a British one then it won't have any mark whatsoever. S = Sydney, M = Melbourne, P = Perth, SA = South Africa, C = Canada not sure about India though.
    Hey gettin' a little off track Great find by the way!!!

    The only mark, and it's under the horse and to the right and slightly above the "6" in the date of 1886, is a "B P".
