That's a wee beauty Bob and I can understand why you would want to clean it but as others have said, I think you know, deep down, that this coin should not be touched.

Yes. You are right but it DESERVES a scrub and polish!

Thanks to everyone for all the comments and advice.

Chuffed to bits.

...stunning coin Bob and if anything get it professionally cleaned by a coin conservator if you want.
