Seller's Note/ The awesome reverse on this issue commemorates the emperor's assumption of his fourth consulship on 1 January 145 AD. For cleaning? Just soft dirt and you know the drill. After appropriate cleaning, a wax and buff will not only bring the patina it to glory...but will greatly increase it's value in your collection, as well.
