    For those who may be interested:here's the "V" nickel cleaned as best as I could

    Just as I suspected, the right side of the obverse is worn beyond repair...was able to see *10 stars, but that's it.

    Copper bleeded through in some spots .....can't do anything about it, but I 'll keep this coin..it's 122 yrs. old...the oldest "Liberty" nickel I have ever found

    Thanks for looking

    I was going to say "ditto". But you did a better job than that. Nearly amazing restoration IMO.
