Nice siliqua - I'm sure that it would come up nicely with the correct clean - It's Julian, Lyon mint.
Hi Roland, thanks for your comment...can't seem to get it much better, and advice on what mite improve it .. Wink

Well I could clean it for you Smiley - or you could try this method: - wrap it in silver foil, put it in a container, put in a good amount of washing soda (although some people swear by baking soda with a tiny pinch of salt) and then pour in boiling water. You'll see bubbles coming out of the mixture. When activity has died down a bit - and before the water has completely cooled, remove the coin and give it a gentle brushing - I use a horsehair brush, or a sponge, but some people use a really old, worn toothbrush to clean the 'black' off it. It will be very clean then, and there are a number of ways to tone them down.

I sometimes find that with this cleaning method, I then have to dip the coin in dilute acid afterwards as there are sometimes some stubborn black spots which don't go otherwise (and conversely dipping the coin in acid first won't always get rid of the corrosion), but I've been able to clean pretty much any silver coin with these methods.

Hope this helps Smiley
Appreciate your advice Roland, many thanks Wink
