A possible 67 and solid 66 reverse!

Not to sure about the obverse. 😂 🤣

    An acetone bath would not hurt it.

    I'm also wondering if VERDI-CARE would help remove the verdigris without making it worse.

    No way to help that spot. The metal is way too corroded

  • Namvet69Namvet69 Posts: 8,592 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Still think remove the verdigris, neutralize the corrosion, save what's left. Oh the humanity!

    This hurts my heart.

    On a much lesser coin, I found a 1998 WIDE AM Cent once, and when I turned it over it looked worse than this! Not a valuable coin, but it still was disappointing

    Quit coin searching when you have a cold! :D

    Sorry for your loss :'(

    I am a newer collector (started April 2020), and I primarily focus on U.S. Half Cents and Type Coins. Early copper is my favorite.

    @OAKTREE Did the bird do that to the obverse after or before it was speared? Ha Ha :D

    Maybe some Verdicare could help, but I would test it on a normal one first.

    I feel it is environmental damage beyond salvage.

    If it was mine I would put in jar of mineral oil and leave for a year- although I have no idea what it would do with the manganese brass.

  • OAKSTAROAKSTAR Posts: 5,456 ✭✭✭✭✭

    I tried the Verdicare route @Ownerofawheatiehorde after an acetone bath. The acetone did nothing! It "might" have loosened up the gunk. All that gunk came off this one coin. I repeated and rinsed several times. Just gently wiping the coin with the Q-tips.

    I use the verdicare sparingly (just a few drops at a time), I don't have much left. It really seemed the dissolve the verdigris! It's still environmental damage but a major improvement!

    Wow, looks like a completely different coin. :)
