Excellent coin, well readable. If the green stuff bothers you, try rubbing it away carefully with a soft cloth (old baby clothes are perfect) drenched in a double soda solution (50% washing soda, 50% baking soda solved in water) or bath it in the solution for 1 to 4 days (haven't tried it, this might take off te yellow patina also.)

The mint on this one is part visible in the left margin, on a well centred strike it would be off the flan

Thanks Peter and Victor.

Peter, I may try the 1st option some day but cleaning a coin is the scary work for me.  ::)
