It is difficult to evaluate a coin from an image but I could give you some thoughts on your coin.


The green and yellow substances you see trapped in the recesses of your coin could likely be addressed through conservation. As usual with copper coins with the age of yours, we take every effort to keep the color on the remainder of the coin. Chances are the color may be effected somewhat but that effect will be minimal. This could of course all change once we see the coin in hand and can determine what the substances might actually be.


Chris, NCS
