About this seller
Notes:Aug 19, 09 - The mint mark on the reverse is obscured. It is unclear if this is due to the overall condition of the coin or its current state of cleaning. Additional cleaning may improve the appearance of both sides of this coin.

The seller of this coin, H*O*A*R*D also sells on eBay as Land-Of-Kush. He is notorious for false advertising and misleading claims in his auctions. This coin was received as part of a group of 20 coins that were supposed to have been unclean. They were actually cleaned late Roman bronze coins that had been "re-dirted" (re-covered with mud after being cleaned). I feel lucky that I actually received genuine coins.
