    Cleaning an aluminum token

    Had an awesome day! My sister let me hunt her 1921 home and I found my first wheat penny. Actually, found 3 of them. All are 1944. I also found what I believe is an aluminum tolken. It's got a scalloped edge. It says R.R. Roberts and appears to be a cigar token. My question is: How do I clean the corrosion off of it without messing it up. I'm positive it is aluminum. I used a toothbrush, which worked for most of it, but there is some really hard corrosion that just doesn't seem to want to come off.
    Any suggestions Soak it in something?

    I just soaked one in lemon juice and most of the crud came off.

    After more scrubbing it appears to be a 5 cent token for Sight Draft Cigars . Anyone ever heard of that?

    There is a token forum. You might want to ask there.
