    Some parts still have to be cleaned, but I am very satisfied so far..Very fine, extremely fine? Your opinion?

    That's so cool! Where do you get the uncleaned coins? Metal detecting I assume?

    Perfect. The cleaning is even better than this very nice find. Did you soak it in distilled water for many days?

    In what region was this found? Without geographic context, it's hard to appreciate the history or importance of a MD find.
