good evening to all, today I present this coin that seems quite well kept and preserved. the real dilemma is to clean or not clean, where if I showed up with the same in the grading forum many of the expert users certainly would not recommend cleaning it. By cleaning the incrustation especially on the face of Charles VI, does money lose economic value? thank you again and again

I would leave it alone -- the encrustation and patina are protecting the underlying metal. Attempting to clean the coin might damage the surface and lead to further deterioration.

It appears to be dug or a metal detector find. I rather like it "as found."

If I am not mistaken, the coin is not worth very much anyhow because of its condition, so there is low risk to attempting to improve its appearance, from a monetary viewpoint.

I think it will always have an uneven surface appearance anyhow

@manry, nice imporovement. I am not familiar with this use for EDTA, bu tit looks like it acts in a fairly gently way.
