Seller's Note/ Holy Cow! This is one awesome coin, from the strikes & centering, perfect unblemished and glossy green patina, and exquisite details on each side. On the note the elegant sweep of the emperors toga and the fact he is wearing hat!
Presented "as arrived", what you see on the surfaces is simply due to my rubbing it with my fingers while the coin was wet. Yes, the dirt is so soft it instantly turns to mud when dampened. So soft, in fact, that I have no doubts whatsoever that this coin can be cleaned with a toothpick!
