It can be difficult to scan the edges of thin objects and also to align the sides. These coins were scanned on a leaflet featuring printed text to make it easy to capture the edges. In order to help with alignment, each coin was scanned in four positions: lying flat heads up, lying flat tails up, standing on its side (held in place by a pair of pliers) and again standing on its side, but with the design turned the other way round (180 degrees).

Scanning time: 
3-4 min (1 coin)
