How to recognize an artificial patina?


Recommended Posts

I like the CircCam look of this specimen.  Now do I believe that its has been cleaned at one point...yes. .... as has many others that are 200 years younger!

I am no expert on this series but ths inner fields looked as they been cleaned and retoned. As for the coin in general I like it.

Very eye appealing coin to my liking.

Acetone will only soften or remove organic substances. It has never been known to remove toning/patina. The only possibility is if someone applied a fake patina with an organic substance, looking at the OP coin that doesn´t appear to be the case.
