I am doing the best with photos of Cartouches on back,it's very very hard to clean the scarab as i don't want to damage anything.I used two digital cameras to take photos of cartouches and i think they are clear for interpretations.
-Cartouche in the middle has like solar globe on top-scorpio figure in the middle with three points ??and below ??
-Cartouche in the left has Anuubis i bet on the top and others figures below??
-Below both cartouches there is lion seating left  in front of vase
-Beside cartouches there is standing figure...
-Last questions:Why 2 Cartouches??
thanks for all help

Russ:
Hi Mike,
The cartouche on the scarabs back, on the right side, is that of Tutankhamun. I would say the chances of this scarab being real are about 1 in 1000. If the price is very reasonable and you want to gamble, why not?
