Posthumous Constantine: Zapped And "Mint"?

I was zapping a group of coins today and saw what appeared to be a very nice Constantine Quadriga. The coin is also called the "Hand of God" coin. The coin was already showing a great deal of promise when I began to "baby" it with my bamboo stick each time I pulled it from the solution.

I had no idea how nice the coin would be. I wanted to leave patina so I watched it carefully. The coin you see above is the product of my efforts. Please take note of the eye on Constantine on the obverse and then look at the eyes of the horses on the reverse. Amazing detail. I think it is at least a VF++ by my standards. Please let me know what you think. God Bless.. Jerry..
