My new little Treasure and first Nero! :hello2:
I thought let´s start with an extremly magnificent and expensive specimen :laughing7:

Got it yesterday and finished it the same day.

Next pic is my extremly rare and now a 10k Augustus Denarius from an very old collection.
It was many years ago cleaned with elektrolysis which has left particular a thin transformed layer of pure silver with bubbles in it, that lies directly over a thin ramining cuprit layer. Hard to remove from the original silver but the coin is nearly finished and in nearly mint condition (EF+)! More pics of this DREAM Coin will follow later.

Results are picture perfect Tom.
Can't wait to see the finished results on the silver.

If we're not fancy-can we still see the results?
Sure pepper!!

Still working on good photos!
To photograph darker coins is real a pain in the butt....

Oh, the Augustus Denarius in finish too! Photos follow!

Here it is.

Damn modern Cameras.... not nearly how it looks in original.
It is much smoother with a perfect surface!

Well certainly the results speak for themselves Tom.
Nicely done once again
Query: Private collection?

I found that most general photo editing programs are not that great.
Then again I don't retain enough of the past knowledge to make it work now it seems.
