That was one very nice coin. How do you clean it, or should I say how do you get the dirt and muck off these coins you find?

did you hear this....

latest ebay scam is to claim that the writing on the edge of the £2 coin is "the wrong way up". Royal mint website states that with 700 coins per hour struck, and the milling + edge inscriptions applied first - there is NO "right way up" or "wrong way up".

No Freddy, I haven't heard that, but in my experience people will put any discrimination to boost a sale for the £2 coin, even too the point of saying that the type of coin is a rare type, I always check my coins on change checker mate
