Do you think the dark coin has been cleaned and re-toned?



Hard to judge from a picture, but the reddish discolouring is typical fir Cilit Bang type soapscum :) Then again, what's reddish on my screen may be light green on yours...

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.


Circulated 1950 and 1951 coins (and 1949) have that characteristic tan colour as seen on the left.

The right hand coins seems to have had a spell in the ground!
