Extra "Thick" Toning

4 posts in this topic

If I'm showing my ignorance, I'm sorry, but something bothers me about the coin. The "patina" looks a bit too perfect on both sides and I am wondering why the edges aren't as consistently coated. It would seem to me that at least the recessed areas of the designs would show some color variation.Is this a coin that you found or was it a purchase from somewhere. I know that when my wife and I were in Greece and Italy, copies of ancient coins were plantiful for the tourist trade. I am wondering if MAYBE this might be a copy? Just a feeling. Hope I'm wrong!!
