Cleaning cash
« on: April 25, 2011, 01:15:02 PM »
I have acquired some Chinese cash coins caked in hard dirt. They also show oxydation. I don't mind the oxydation one way or the other, but I want to get rid of the dirt. I soaked them in olive oil for a month, which had n effect. What would be the next step?

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

Asking Bruce would get you the best answer but I would boil or soak in Gringotts

Thank you. On a light note, the closest I got to numismatics when I googled gringotts was here. I found the problem. GG ;)
