We have shown 3 different versions of the same image, the Obverse of a Silver Halfcrown of George III. The coin is sterling silver 92.5% pure.
In all three cases, we have cropped the image as closely as possible, and resized to 240 pixels wide, we have used 15% JPEG compression using Paint Shop Pro 7 to keep image files to reasonable sizes.
The coin was photographed using our Fuji S1 digital camera, using a Nikon SB29 ringflash, mode manual, aperture 32, shutter 1/90th. The background as for most of our coin images is a sheet of plain white paper. The camera white balance setting were naturally adjusted to this.
