This coin has been brutally cleaned. It may start to look better if you rub it with a mixture of graphite (use a hard pencil and a sharpener to harvest it) and olive oil. The mixture will give it a more natural colour and fill the tiny holes, eaten by copper oxide. The olive oil will attract more dirt in a natural way.

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

Peter thanks for advise , actually the coin came out of corrosive mud or clay I believe so , I had just washed it in soda with luke warm water olive bath to follow.
