I have a few minor denominations that I picked from world coin junk boxes when I was younger but nothing rare or valuable.
The 19th century ones are very expensive. The 20th century ones are pricey but mostly doable, though everyone's definition of affordable is different.
I currently have the 25 and 50 ORE from 1926. I wish I had a way to post photos. Does anyone know of a good photo editing program that doesn't cost my first born? The 50 ORE is beautifully toned, I would love to show it off lol. Now I'm looking for a nice 1944 5 Kroner. There are a few on EBay however most have black spots or are fairly worn. The prices are all over the place. Anywhere from 40 to $150. The mintage on the "44" is only 100k.
Thanks again for the replies!
www.photoscape.org it's free and great. Many of us here use it. If you have questions on how to do something specific, feel free to message me.
Thank you Seattite86, I will definitely have a look at it!
This one looks pretty respectable. There's a 63 for over $300 on ebay too. https://www.ebay.com/itm/NGC-MS-62-...765101?hash=item41fd6eb4ad:g:F~cAAOSwGjtcgeWO
Do you use a Mac or PC?
The photo preview on the Mac allows a really fast ellipse crop that I then import into usually PicMonkey. https://www.picmonkey.com/ Pickmonkey has a free and pay version. I use the pay version as I have ended up using it for quite a bit. Even the Christmas cards.
I also use the freebie version of Paint S on the Mac for some things. It's what I made my avatar with in fact.
I've only heard good things about photoscape though.
I also have a few of the Greenland coins. Nothing from the 19th century though. Plus a few mining tags from IIRC the 1960s.
My most recent PicMonkey coin shot. I imported the coins shots after circle cropping them on the Mac.
Happened to be playing with the Paint S program next for fun:
And, from Greenland:
As rough as it is, I really like that Paddy. Didn't spot it at DNW but my focus was on some really nice Isle of Man bits at that auction.
WOW, they are some nice photos, thanks for sharing them! Unfortunately I only have an IPad.
Nice collection Hiddendragon! Thanks for sharing the photos!
