Roman Collector Posted December 6, 2022 · Patron Share Posted December 6, 2022 (edited) I purchased this bronze provincial of Faustina the Younger from a dealer in a hot, humid environment. The eBay photos weren't very good, but the price was right and I did not have an example in my collection, so I purchased the coin. When it arrived, I saw that it had bronze disease, particularly at the 7:00 position on the reverse. I treated it with Verdicare, which seems to have taken care of the problem. It also resulted in a glossy appearance to the coin's surface (toned bronze). The treatment seems to have stabilized the coin, making it safe for long-term storage.
