Strange. In the edit screen, I was able to paste in the picture, but when I saved it, the picture was not there (see above). I have a jpg that's less than 150 kB, but which icon do I use to embed it? There's one that says "link" and one that says "image." Both seem to need a URL. When I put in a URL using the "link" icon, I got, you guessed it, a link to the picture in dropbox. But how to create an inline picture embedded in the post???

Lol, i will revert you to your own post about your new desktop computer and windows 8.1 and my "scrap" comment.

Anyhoo, there's no pasting with IE, try firefox

Ha ha, well perhaps in this instance I will agree about the "scrap" comment. Anyway I'm getting used to 8.1.

So OK I will try Firefox. Thanks for the tip.

New pics of a coin I've had for a while but not posted on here before.

Beautifully toned and one of my favourite reverse designs:

Nice. I posted a similar coin dated 1820 on page 3 of this thread.

1820 Halfcrown I think I paid about $AU 110 for it in the late 1980s

Stunning coin Ozjohn, and great pics too :)

Thanks your coin ain't bad either. I think azda is right about the reverse designs for these and the 1825 - 1829 halfcrowns.

Just been drooling over the amazing coin porn in this thread again. Worth revisiting time after time for the stunning examples and quality photography :)

Here's another of mine, partly just to re-promote the thread!

You have a very interesting coin collection Rob, and one well worth presenting some how, some day! I know photographing coins frustrates you at times, as it does me, and many others, but how do you, personally, take pleasure from perusing your collection? Is it very often from viewing pics, of varying quality and accuracy of likeness, or do you regularly view your coins 'in hand'?

I'm really interested in your (and other's) views on this, if a collection has to be stored away in a bank vault (for example), then are you only left with the pics, many of which you wish were of better quality?

You can only deal with a very small portion of a collection at any one time, so the question of it being in a bank vault is not a major problem. You might want to look at a small group, but it is difficult to imagine a study that would require hundreds of coins in hand at the same time.

Coins are bought individually and are best viewed as a single object. Two coins side by side invariably leads you to say one is better than the other, whereas in many respects they will still be equal. Not all coins are available in identical grade, toning, or shape, but all were purchased on their individual merits.

Oops. Forgot that. Much easier to find nice hammered than milled.
