    Even though I mostly lurk I want to thank you all for your posts and pointing me in the right direction being a new ancient collector

    I started collecting after being left a modest ancient collection from a family member. I’ve spent a fair amount of time studying history and learning about what I’d like to collect.
    I’m very busy but want everyone to know I enjoy this forum when I have a few minutes of downtime at my job
    Next step is to take some pictures of coins.

    You shall continue to collect ancients above all other coins. All glory to the Hypnotoad.

    I think we need a group shot of this "modest" collection.

    @JAncient77 sometimes all I can do is lurk. We get busy and life changes sometimes.

    I'm going to take a group shot of my modest collection today thanks to the inspiration I've gotten from some of the newer members.

    Doug I have spent a few hours reviewing your website on how to take pictures of coins. I hope to spend some time in upcoming weeks creating a set up.

    I have a Nikon dl7500 and am looking at getting a macro lense. Hopefully I can do that without breaking the bank

    I have had good luck using extender rings instead of a macro lens with my sony a6000. Much cheaper for just starting out.

    I know nothing about Nikon except that they have had more than one style mount so be sure you buy an extention tube or set that works and retains auto functions with your model.

    Hi @Smojo ! It's okay to repost coins that you've already shown in the past. There are many newcomers who haven't seen them. :woot: And, some of the old-timers might not remember seeing them the first time around ;)

    DRay I just meant sometimes life changes we get busy and it gets difficult at times to just find the time to post or respond to posts that really catches our interest, and was reasuuring tbe OP its ok to lurk sometimes.
    You may recall I recently uprooted and moved and changed jobs and been stuck on second shift. It's been a comlplete lifestyle change and am still trying to get settled and used to the new suroundings, I'm sure 20 years ago it wouldn't have been quite the adjustment but I'm no spring chicken anymore.

    Oh man, I completely understand! My last position, as a hotline volunteer, required me to get up at 3 o'clock in the morning. I did that for years but it ended 2 years ago. I still wake up at 3 and it's hard for me to stay awake past 7 PM.
