Is there any bronze disease in this sestertius?


Recommended Posts

When you scratch it with your finger nail does a light green chalky substance come off? If so, then, yes. 

However, if it is hardened then it is normal and a good patination.  

But I'm not seeing anywhere that's its eaten away the metal. So I'm thinking not BD. But the picture of the reverse is harder to tell. 

Ps, beauuuuuutiful portrait btw

Well rats. I used google lens to look the coin up and see what price it is and if it's in a price range that I like😉

Fortunately for others I couldn't find it. 

Well, good luck and hopefully the green scares others away. It wouldn't stop me.
