    If found in salt water, you need to soak in distilled water for weeks or months to get the salt out.

    Olive oil seems to be the soaking substrate of choice. I have soaked alot of coins in it with pretty decent results. After only a couple of days you will see the olive oil change to a greenish color from all the crap it is removing. Ive read to change your oil every so often. If nothing else it should allow you to eventualy get an id and or date from your coins. Oe member here has mentioned that he uses ammonia to clean the coins then uses a little olive oil to brighten them up. Remember this process takes a very long time so if you are impatient I would not recommend...Shoot
