Coins and Militaria for Auction, Records for Ebay

An account of a day’s imaging, including some of the most interesting pictures.

INTRODUCTION

This post is about the imaging I have done at James and Sons today. In total I have produced 180 images today (no, I am not going to share them all!), using the scanner for the coin lots and the camera for the rest.

THE BULK JOB – THE FIRST TRANCHE OF COINS FOR THE AUGUST SALE

The coins I imaged today were lots 1-50 in the August auction, except that lot 3 was missing. Images of both faces of each coin were required, which meant two sets of scans, and then some editorial work, resulting in three images for each lot. Here to further explain the process is lot 1…

The two images joined together (1 in the main image folder.

I scan these many lots at a time at very high resolution (600 dpi), the exact number of lots depending on the size of the coins, and on the number of coins that make up the lots. The 49 coin lots I scanned today were achieved in four tranches (i.e eight scans in total). Here some of the more interesting specimens…

RECORDS FOR EBAY

There were some interesting items here. In total there were 11 separate items, all boxed sets of multiple records, and I offer you a selection of images…

Hammond SpectacularJ S Bach - Harpsichord Works

La Boheme - Teatro Dell'Opera Di Roma
Unlike a couple of others that I imaged today this is not a duplicate – it is a different recording of La Boheme to the one that I imaged on Tuesday.

World of Great Classics

THE FINAL SESSION – MILITARIA

Having finished the records it was time to image some items of militaria. This once again required the camera. Here are are a few highlights to conclude this post…
