This beautiful ( on one side ) Rupee was sold on eBay. See the prime condition on one side.
I have one coin from this mint in my collection, AH 1056

Maybe Jaspersaini's question is "would you buy this". My personal (I don't ask anyone to agree) answer to this question is that in general, I would not buy a coin looking great on one side and bad on the other side. Even if conservation were successful, the bad side would never look as good as the good side and the coin would give me frustration instead of pleasure.

Having said that, I can imagine a price so low that I would be tempted to buy it anyway. It seems like the coin spent a long time on top of, or below a copper or billon coin. If so, that would mean that at least some of the dark stuff could be removed with a diluted acid treatment. At best, the bad part would look flat or worn, but the coin's looks could be improved, I think. I would not on-sell it, but rather give it to someone who would appreciate it for what it is: a glorious, appetising filler.

I have a feeling the deposit on the reverse should come off easily with a prolonged soak in distilled water, followed by cleaning with a nylon brush.

I have one with the same date.
