I purchased this coin and it came with a green mark on it which I figured was some gunk/tarnish, but i was able to actually scrape it off and when I did it revealed a different sort of surface underneath. It almost looks like the coin had been plated with some kind of metal ( has that general modern US COIN metal smell) I know this coin was supposed to be sterling. Any thoughts ?
So i dont have a good picture of it, but underneath the green thing I scraped off is where the plating is revealed. Cant tell if it was plating or if it was an acid test that changed the surface there?
It does have a very good ring. Sounds like silver. Just an odd smell for silver (smells like steel/nickel) Definaltey a nicer ring than my 1921 british florin
Need Info about the AUS 1 Florin, 1940 may be fake?
