What's Wrong with this Photo?

Can you see what's wrong with this photo? I noticed it right away.

From here.


Bunk nailed it in one: the table isn't level.

No, I'm kidding. Table isn't level? Are you serious? The thing that jumps out at me is that the only readily identifiable coin in the photo is a nickel! Close examination reveals that the 'base' coin is also a nickel. So, the annotation should be: "Two nickels and 101 pennies."

Nickels on Whidbey Island.

The photo is in black and white and has non-standard proportions, and the margins aren't even.
The table isn't level.
The proper term is "cents" not "pennies."

They're nickels?

It looks to me as if the stack is pennies but the coin posed vertically and seemingly holding up the stack is a nickel. What's your answer? Some great pix at the site you linked to, Dan.

I was just funnin' y'all. The nickel answer was too obvious.
