Brilliant ! the slight corrosion is fully compensated by the lovely green surface patina !

Agreed. If I dink the coin slightly to the left, the natural sunlight shows the Ujjain symbol completely on extreme left.

Am adding here a coin added to my collection recently, probably a fraction as weight is very low compared to original post. Would request any additional inputs regarding this if possible.
