Different lighting making such a difference?

Recommended Posts


the seller says he photographed it in different lighting to show the toning.

No reason to disbelieve him- his other auctions look fine.

I can only just tell it is the same coin by the edge knocks by the '3'.

Just shows what can happen....

Blake, it's something we have commented about in another thread. The differences can be amazing.

For another very striking example, see Richard's rarest penny website for the F175 & 176. There are examples of each where Richard has highlighted massive differences when photographing the same specimens.
