      Hey TW,
      Nice to see you back at CT. I thought you left for good.

      1) Where did you find such treasurers?
      2) How does one get such clear photos?
      3) What must I do to get Obverse and Reverse
      photo to appear side by side?

      Most of those coins I posted were either bought on ebay after searches of coins from those nations, I will often go through coins on world coin gallery and see a coin I want, I will then look for them...some I bought at a coin show or on a place like Vcoins.com

      I shoot all my coins with no flash, in macro setting, with a light source, sometimes 2.

      I get them side by side by opening each photo (obverse and reverse) and cutting and pasting them both into the same file...I use photoshop.

      Sorry I didn't reply earlier:

      Your Bhutan 20 chetrums coin comes from Bhutan, a tiny Himalaya kingdom between India and China.
      Also: the Liberté Egalité fraternité coin comes from France: liberty, egality and brotherhood is the motto of the French Revolution, still used today.

      I hope this helps,
      If you have still some questions: you can contact me on my e-mail address: bart.perdieus@skynet.be

      PS. I need you to give me the name of the author of the book you recommended.

      The Catalog I recommended is published by Krause. There are several volumes by century. But I guess you did good. You don't need those expensive precise price guides unless you are up to selling or trading your coins.
      I see you got yourself a good MS Thai coin. My best friend works in Thailand and I get my regular dose of Thai coins, stamps and notes from him. I had another good day in my numismatic office today.LOL:D Got in mail a 30 world coin parcel from my German friend. Guess what I got. 12 Bi metallic coins including famous and rare Morocco coins, 5 Silver coins including 2 1/2 G The Netherlands crown size coin, a UNC Slovenia 2007 Euro set and others. I was lol-ling the whole day out of sheer maddness.:D I love my daily dose of world coins from my friends around the world.
      Regarding foreign language; I know a little German, French and Russian hies and hellos to communicate in foreign language forums I am part of and theres always an online translator when I can't.LOL. How much do you charge to teach "Texican":goofer:.
      I hope the Gods of world coin bless you with more cherry picking oppourtunities. Take care my friend:hug:.
