I have a "Domitian" AE As coin that has a green patina over the whole surface. By accident (...don't ask!) I scraped a small part of the patina off the edge of the coin,thus exposing a bright copper like color ....(only a  few millimeters or so in length)

Is there some way to get the patination back over the exposed area of the coin? I saw a post on how to re-patinate a silver coin earlier today,but don't know how that will work on the copper (whatever an AE As metal is.) Thanks!

You could try some Dellar's Darkener. It is sulfur based and will darken bronze. If you use a toothpick to apply, you can put it on only the area you want. If you do a word search on the internet you will find it. It may or may not work, but the stuff is pretty cheap.

apply it carefully to only the shiny area as it could darken the green patina.

Hi, I've had some success with touching up minor breaches in patina like what you describe - in my case caused by over enthusiastic brushing  Roll Eyes - by dabbing JAX repatination fluid on the affected area with a cotton wool bud. Jax comes in several colours including green.

cheers,
