KimonDecadrachmNAC46improved2B4NAfter



This coin is for sale in the next NAC 46 auction. I was curious as to what it would look like without some of the major defects and, as I corrected those, I thought this community might find it of interest as to how much a digital picture can be changed with modern technology. The one on the left is unaltered. The one on the right is "improved". With all the fakes and forgeries out there, this is another example of Caveat Emptor.

ROFL!!


Don't worry. If I ever sell anything, it will be through a reputable dealer or auction house, but I hope to keep adding to my collection for a while. I've always loved the Kimonian Decadrachms, but I doubt I will ever be able to afford a nice one. Now, at least, I have a really nice picture of one side of one. I guess I will have to live with that.

I agree with Jeff. I am miserable with Photoshop. I have trouble with every part of it.
