Next steps for a worn Philip


Recommended Posts

I just identified an uncleaned coin as a provincial issue of Philp the Arab - I think it's this coin, up to the regnal year. I've attached a pdf highligthing which features are visible when the coin is wet. It's been in distilled water for ~15 months now and I'm not really sure there's anything else to clean off. I am able to see the details highlighted in the slides when the coin is wet, but the thing looks like a total slug when dry. Is Renwax a good solution for making the details pop? Will an outer layer of Renwax allow the coin to repatinate? I dug down to bare metal in the center of the reverse not knowing what I was looking at. What are good next steps for cleaning?
