Buying a newspaper yesterday (yes Virginia, there are still newspapers) and when the guy drops the change in my hand, I heard a strange ‘clink’.
It turned out to be an old 1917 Liberty dime. First thought- grab the old Olympus, and see if I can make a fun macro…

(Correction: Thanks to PB'er durban (Dan), I found out that its actually a Mercury dime - hence the winged hat :)
