hotwheelsearl Posted July 28, 2022 · Member Share Posted July 28, 2022 I have this coin of...somebody (Claudius? Tiberius? I was unsuccessful in my search - can't be that hard, how many coins have L-Z with an Apis bull? It's 22mm (probably a diobol) if you feel like taking a crack) that was in rough shape when I got it. Much of the patina was lost, splotchy, and otherwise muted and unappealing. So I slathered some Ren Wax on it, and lo and behold... it changed the color somewhat. Didn't reveal a whole lot of additional detail, but this seems to be a common thing with Rex Wax - it "hydrates" (for lack of better words, I know there's no water in the compound) the "dry" parts of the coin, sort of like how wood looks like after some Old English. The coin is still splotchy and unappealing, but now it looks a bit more normal, I think. 6 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
