:cool: But practically worthless. hugeeyes Looks like Post Strike Damage from grout holding the coin in place. lol:
Also notice how the red Marian soil (or grout) gives it mint luster around the rim and devices, not! :l
I would really like to know and thank whoever came up with the idea of using a coin in this situation, especially Abe.
Another thing I just realized is that even with "all" the signs of water and ice that have been found this copper coin shouldn't be covered in verdis gris because there is no oxygen for the chemical reaction.
