    Do you know why your Nan treasured it? If it had a special meaning for her it might make any other considerations unimportant?
    I have an 1888 Sov that might be a variety and would probably benefit from conservation but I keep it just as it is because it was a loving gift from my late aunt and uncle.

    It's completely different from TENNS...superficially perhaps similar initial results (reduced pain), but they work very differently indeed. I suggest research, a few interviews on Youtube with Richard Cumbers will give you an idea. If you are near London/Kent you can try mine for free (well perhaps for the cost of a 9V battery lol). Good wishes

    coin photography pushes the limits of technology as the dynamic range (dark to bright) usually maxes out the capabilities of the sensor, especially proof coins (hence the matte proofs in the past).
    in order to compensate for the shadow when photographing without a semitransparent mirror (to avoid the reflection/shadow of the lens/camera) you can play with the exposure to make use of the dynamic range the sensor has captured (the display can show even less than the sensor captures).
    to adequately capture a coin you would have to photograph through a semitransparent mirror and create a HDR (high dynamic range) picture to capture the brightest reflection to the darkest shadow but this requires an extensive setup and extensive post processing. I haven't yet risen to this challenge, so this is my shortcut 😊

    @ilovesilverireallydo hi, neither would I NOW. Just a pity he went about it all in the wrong way.
    Unfortunately, for the wise ones on this forum,we are aware of what lurks out there..not everyone can be trusted.

    No potion but blue tape. Usually the m. scaleni on the neck tense up and impinge on the nerve or further down the path another muscle group tenses up. Blue MediTape on the cramped up area tends to works best in such cases. Maybe @kimchi's SCENAR device is also worth looking at.

    surely they don't express their feelings by their facial expression like humans do, for example dogs show their feelings by the movement of their tails, for example some people think British bulldogs are always very aggressive and grumpy whereas they are not, that's just how they look.

    Pouring aluminium years back the mould wasn’t completely dry. It wasn’t pretty!
    Before I retired I worked in R&D at an automated foundry, I did the programming. Iron on water was our biggest fear. We ran the slag off in to a water flume with no problems.
    Just be careful, wear full PPE.

    Are they all grumpy too Mr Diamond? Is it a particular genetic line that produces grumpy turtles do you think?
    At what age do they mature enough to develop the diamonds?

    Long/short is that it'll never be a numismatic piece. But if it has sentimental value then it's certainly got a story to tell

    If I did that, I'd want to get the paint off as a minimum... it's a very ugly off beige colour.

    But I'm not really a broach person.  That's and my Nan knows I love her, where ever her spirit is.
