    A soak in what and for how long? Might be something I have not tried yet, always open for new ideas.

    Looks like a good technique to perfect when working on something with a bit more potential value too. What I like about this method,though I’m way too impatient to play with wheats,is the different tones the coins have because of their individual makeup and where they were sitting for who knows how long. That’ll be a nice looking “real world” coin folder down the road....

    Your reference to different tones and shades is also my favorite aspect of the final result of this cleaning/restoring process I have many more that I have found over the years to clean.When placed all together it resembles a work of art to me thank you all for looking and your comments
