    Simple way to clean your orange-red brown corroded nickels

    This might work on nickel three-cent coins, too.

    Fatty Indian heads, too? They are ~12% nickel.

    I tried this with a few nickels and am happy with the results. The fist two I tried had some greenish oxidation in addition to the red. They still cleaned up but the coins where pitted and rough. The second two I did only had the red oxidation and came out much nicer than the first two. I'm very happy with how the 1926 Buff came out, big improvement!

    Let your coins soak in GoJo overnight, then gently rub them. Repeat until they are clean. I used a q-tip to clean the details.

    Sometimes that can devalue a coin...but if its not too valuable a coin that would be good choice

    Squirrel- thanks for the Q-tip suggestion. Works really well.


    Tried this Gojo on an Eagle cent. These coins had ~12% nickel. Results were not as good as what I've seen with nickel coins.

    This took about two weeks of soaking with GOJO and rubbing gently with a Q-tip.
