    before and after 2 cent piece

    Here is the cleaned up 2 cent piece that I found last week. I used Andre's pencils. Quite a difference. Sometimes the corrosion is so bad that the green patina is eaten away and all that is left is the pitted copper but this one came out great. Click image for larger version.

    I'm glad you cleaned it. It's a beauty! Nice job!


    "And so the population was gradually led into the demoralising temptations of arcades, baths, and sumptuous banquets. The unsuspecting Britons spoke of such novelties as 'civilisation', when in fact they were only a feature of their enslavement." Tacitus, Roman Senator and Historian, written AD 98.
