  3. Nice Faustina. The crud on the Gallienus ant looks a bit challenging but you are making good progress.

    That Gallienus could have a pretty nice portrait after you got the crud off.
    The Faustina is really nice too!

    Nice find! I think they'll both clean up quite nicely.

    Gallienus looks like a VIRTVS AVG:

    And the Faustina a FORTVNAE MVLIEBRI:

    Nice! I think both should clean up without much effort. Unless you consider patience an effort :)

    @galba68 ....Very nice! The Faustina is lovely..
    But I'm really interested in the detail that comes through on the reverse of the Gal..Looking at whats appearing so far it should be a super looking coin with a nice green patina...Congrats Paul
