Hello again,

An other recent metal detecting find,

Was hoping to hear your opinion on the grading for this coin.

Thanks again

It is a great coin for a detector find, too! It seems to be about VF with some corrosion spots. A regular VF would retail for $400 or so.

EASY vf, and an AMAZING detector find.

A good soak in Verdi-Care / verdi-gone will do that coin wonders.

Thanks everyone for your help.

P.S. About the Verdi Care,was wondering if it will completely remove the green patina?

It will do a good job, but you've got to be careful not too go to far. sometimes stopping the green is better than removing it.

I have only used it on non-MS coins, and only with a Q-tip & toothpick.

The danger of ground soaked coins is corrosion (there is some present on yours) and removing the verdigris can result in exposing un-toned surfaces (see below)

If you intend to keep it, my advice (take it for what it's worth) would be:

24 hour soak in verdigone,
light Q-tip treatment to remove any "loose" crud,
toothpick to remove stubborn "chunks",
re-soak or re-coat the surfaces with verdigone, pat dry with a soft cloth or tissue.

The verdi treatment should lock any remaining verdigris and keep it from spreading.

If you intend to sell then I would leave it as-is, because any treatment can not be un-done and you run the risk of devaluing it substantially.

Again, amazing find. These aren't totally impossible to find online/from a dealer, but you'll never dig up another one out of the ground!

Below: not mine, but a fair example of what sorts of ugly could be lurking underneath honest aging.

Thanks a lot Wade. I will buy this product and try on less valuable coins first.
I did find an other scarce coin on the same week end detecting trip. Will be posting it soon on the forum.
