Dear Anthony, thank you for your comment! I's going to be my stage #2 to apply acetone and I'll make another video shortly. Thus far I tried concentrated lemon juice and Leuchtturm coin cleaning absolution - artificial putty resisted against both.

Finally, some good news on the subject - looks like "vending machine" for these dangerous fakes on VCoins was shut down:

https://www.vcoins.com/en/stores/indus_valley_coins/

But these crooks are still on ebay, although number of fakes is relatively low. BTW, on ebay they don't bother hiding their actual location - Pakistan, as it was the case on VCoins:

HEPTHALITE %u201CLORD OF CHIONITES-THE VICTORIUS%u201D AR DRACHM. | eBay

drbilloo on eBay

Indus Valley Coins | eBay Stores

And here is another distributor of these fakes, also from PK:

Indo-Scythian AZES (57-35 BC), AE unit - 8.56 gm, Senior 77.1 | eBay

Luckily, many collectors will recognize these specimen now.
Unfortunately, i think there still are a lot of these where they are coming from.
