Here’s a couple of macro photographs of my 1991 American Silver Eagle coin. I’ve had this coin since about 1994 or so. I think it was a prize for winning an inspection at a restaurant that I used to manage. Like with my Susan B. Anthony coin, my method of storage is not the best. You can see the coin is starting to tarnish.
I tried a different background this time. I used a sheet of everyday copy paper. I also tried several different exposures. Two seconds at 100 ISO and F/22 is what looked the best to me.
