Thanks a lot. I couldn't agree more about the remaining dirt highlighting the relief. Too many times I (and many others) have gone too far with the cleaning. If you clean, know when to say when.

There's always been a rush to clean coins, buttons, relics,etc..my philosophy has been that the dirt ain't going anywhere and the corrosion rate is diminished out of the ground. Cleaning can wait as far as I'm concerned, although some people can't wait to preserve the finds.
In your case Rick you now have a ready to display find, well done!
.......and the dynamite goes....yeeah BOOOM baaabay!!

Very nice find. I'd be beside myself to find one of them.
