Howdy and welcome.
Do I understand correctly that you have taken minted coins and reworked them?

Marcus, i use my gravermax to remove excess metal first and then finish up with a #38 flat carver, then i use a sanding stick to take scratches out, then i use a micro-blaster..by having carved so many coins, smoothing background [field ] is something i do without thinking, thank you for your comments [ps] I enjoy and study your work as you are one of today,s master engravers.
I love these hobo nickels! Tell me, how do you manage to get the background so smooth?
