My questions are
1. my coin weighs 9 grams where the weight mention in numista catalog is 9.2 (i weighed on a kitchen scale), is my coin fake??
This is the picture of my coin
2. My coin has this brown spots which i have tried to clean with a solution of Vinegar and sodium bi carbonate, but it didnt came off. I didnt leave the coin in the solution for long fearing damage.
3. This is a general question, although its quite debated here, but i want to know if you guys clean your coins particularly the dirty ones only to the extant where it can look not 'pristine' but 'clean' i hope i am able to communicate my point
point as English is not my first language.
