Six Mighty Steps found in my Pocket

Coins | mrbrklyn

So, maybe these are more common for the special addition nickels from a few years ago, but I was delighted to find a six step reverse on a Jefferson Nickel in my change this morning.

These things are hard to photograph, especially without my Macro Lens. These are shot with a click and go Canon G7X.

Nice error. Thanks for sharing!

The six steps are only valuable on older nickels, not 2020s. Sorry.

That is fine. I generally don't sell coins, and the value is secondary. It is good to know, though, that this is more common in the newer strikes. Thanx

Nice! I was using a Canon Coolpic, which took great photos using a tripod, but like most nowadays use my phone. I really need to up my images by investing in a digital Rebel and lighting.

I find the DSR is much much better but sometimes I'm too lazy to break it out, I shot these with a G9X point and click by hand - no tripod, using manual focus. If I used my DSR and my Macro Lens, it would be sharp as a tack.

Most modern nickels have all the steps-the enhanced the design. It's only the older ones that are valuable.

You did a good job. I have many with six steps. Never found any in change. Great eye my friend. You did a good job with the macro lens. But they are hard. I bought a microscope from Amazon last year for 35.00. It works on WiFi you can hold it or put it in the stand. Then take the picture.

6 steps are amazing. I should look more often.

That's all I seem to do, look at the steps and regret having to climb them.
