Uncleaned Antoninus Pius Sestertius


SOLD to the lucky winner and NOT a shoe-maker!

Uncleaned Antoninus Pius Sestertius


Condition and Cleaning/ This uncleaned coin is a real gem! Zero encrustations just soft dirt over a superb glossy and a smooth deep green patina. As seen in the photo, all obv/rev legends are intact as well as the portrait and reverse details.

This coin IS NOT for beginners simply due to after-cleaning value. DW soaks, mechanical cleaning only, lots of patience. This issue will easily turn out as VF+ if you have the skills and certainly not for shoe-makers. :-)

Yes, I know that our asking price for an uncleaned coin is quite high, but look on the bright side.

Sure, you could find such at a Coin Show or well-advertised coin auction and pay, what, $500-$700 or more. Give youself the satisfaction of cleaning it yourself and feeling rather smug when you wax and flip and add it to your collection for such a low price.
