This coin suffered quite badly from fairly hard set grot on the obverse face. A brief dip in a weak Scalex solution followed by 7 days in Olive Oil softened it up to a point where much of the dirt could be removed without resorting to scraping. The photos here show the coin as it arrived, and as it is now. There is still a fair bit of muck to be removed but I am determined not to rush this one.
