Someone posted this on reddit and I think it's absolutely fantastic and fascinating and wanted to share...

The person who posted it says they found it at an estate sale.

The original images in the post are quite poor so I corrected them a touch in Photoshop...
But how cool is this?! :smiley:

    That is really cool how they made the trace of the coins and impression into the paper! I've never seen anything quite like that before! Thanks for sharing.

    I have seen rubbings of old grave stones, but never rubbings of coins. Very interesting. Cheers, RickO

    I had a paper with rubbings of some of my cool coins before I regrettably sold them to buy cheaper coins. I wish I could find it.
