1 Libra Peru received today. Thanks to @Leonmarsh's post in gold deals. Stupid question but its got a bit of muck on it, is it worth trying some soapy water treatment?

 

Yes, warm soapy water should work very well. If the muck persists, you could use an old, soft, toothbrush. Then rinse well and dab dry (the coin, not the toothbrush). 🙂

In South Wales for a week. Went to Cardiff and some of the many arcades on St Mary St. My 10 year old bought this with his own money. 15 quid for 2000 years of history cant be bad. Bronze Faustina The Younger, AD 175ish. Obviously really worn, but a really happy new owner. All good. Hopefully my 2oz completer will be waiting for me when I get home too...

Thank you! I'll have a look. That makes sense as all the Faustina coins I saw all had her seated to the left, not the right as on this coin. I know nothing about these coins and it was cheap so wasnt too concerned, but it's nice to know what it actually is. Thanks again.

Today I received a bit of Romanian history  - 140 years old coins

They look great. Some unusual discoloration/tarnish on them as if they've been stored together and away from normal circulation, it gives them character. Do you know any of their history?

I'm afraid I do not. A good friend bought them for me from an old man in a flea market.

The coins are real, I've check
