Surprisingly this is what almost new coin looks like under close view. It is not mint collection quality but it is shiny and looks almost untouched. Actual diameter is 25mm = 1 in.

Focal length: 55 mm
Shutter speed: 1/100 sec
Aperture: F11
ISO: 1000
Notes: Shot with 10cm (4 in.) extension tubes. I do not have rail so I have to change focus to shot 21 slices. Developed in LR 4.4, stacked and finished in Affinity. I originally used Cambo view camera as big bellows with tilts. Coin was sharp on LCD, but there was significant color fringing on 1:1 display (I have no LF macro lens).
