Fantastic. I don't know how you do it.

I wouldn't have guessed that it has these exceptional details in the "before" state.

Ambrozie, I asked my friend how long it took him to clean this coin..He answered me- *Three hours with coffie break*..!?..One is simply born with this gift, and Im not one of them..

There was a touch of chance there (but this doesn't mean your friend is not a skilled expert in cleaning). Under those deposits there could have been a slug coin.

I really admire the people who know how to clean coins properly (not to deceive or anything - I think this case is a pure example of conservation!). When I did it, in 80% of the cases I was unhappy with the results (minor damage to coins, worse aspect). In 10% I had mixed feelings and in 10% I could say I was happy.

I have absolutely no idea what your friend did (and I can't blame him/you if you decide to keep the secret). I don't think it's distilled water, it must be something stronger. And if the process involved mechanical cleaning, hats off, as I see no traces.

@galba68...Wow!.....What a wonderful find!...From the original op photos I knew there was good relief on the coin but was unsure how much detail would remain...

Thanks for the little video showing the skills of not just the cleaner but also the finder...Congrats on a lovely find 🥰

Paul.

Ambrozie, he only uses mechanical cleaning under a microscope..

Extraordinary .... I would have guessed he first soaks the coins into a solution (stronger than distilled water) and then finishes the work with mechanical cleaning. I admit I lack this kind of skill completely. When I mechanically cleaned a coin, scratches were inevitable.
