Kevin's Note: We only have a few of these 'fused-together' Ptolemy Hoard coins and we're offering them to you as 'coin-curiosities' rather than coins to be cleaned. As previously noted, all these coins came from the same hoard, found in a very wet environment on the outskirts of Alexandria, Egypt. Most arrived as 'singles' but quite a few appeared as seen, fused together, do to time and the elements. Most of these are 'two pairs' but there are few 'three pairs'. The cost will be the same for either.
We suggest that you not separate these coins, nor clean them in any way. Leave well enough alone.
The value and fun of owning these coins is in their 'fused' hoard coin state. Some will be semi-precleaned and others 'as found'.
