Yes iam the first owner of this coin.found it metal detecting went from the ground to the coin shop were the coin dealer put it in a coin holder.never rubed it at all.so unless some one cleaned it before it was lost I don't think it's been cleaned.nicest coin I think I ever found.

Given is was found in ground that would explain strange coloring and characteristics of a cleaning (albeit natural). Luckily no evidence of corrosion/pitting. Too bad it wasn't a T5 - a rarer variety by a factor of at least 4:1 compared to the T4.
