Question for Penny People

Looks like a tiny spot of Verdigris. Any hope for this coin?

    Give it an acetone bath, won't hurt the coin or change the color. If it comes off all good, if not then it will be a problem.

    Use Verdi care, that will remove the spot.

    Very much agree.

    I was wondering if this is something that could be sent in for conservation, of it that would be a waste of time.

    I have had very little success using that on large cents, though my spots were larger. Essentially no change after multiple applications. And at $20 for a tiny bottle, I was pretty disappointed.

    I used Verdi Care on this coin which had some verdis, but I don't have a before picture.

    It looks like pvc, not verdigris. Acetone should work.

    Your Indian Cent is in great condition but not worth getting graded/slabbed.
    I found out that sometimes Verdi-Care works and other times it doesn't do a damn thing.

  • The pictures don't do the coin justice, great cartwheels, and nice luster in hand. I won't be sending it in though.
    Want to thank everyone for their feedback!!! You guys are great.

    One last thing before you go. Call it a cent, not a penny. You'll fit in much better here. 👍 😉

    I am not a 'penny' :) type but might check that coin for more greenish spots. I think I could be seeing some scattered around on both the obverse and reverse but smaller and more difficult to determine. On the enlarged photo appears to be some at the bottom of the U. On obverse photo maybe at the bottom of the Liberty head band. Reverse maybe the shield or adjacent areas and around One Cent.. Other similar scattered areas that might be.
