    How do i clean ancient bronze coins

    Hi, I had posted a cleaned well preserved roman coin on here earlier. However now I have 20 of these but still caked with dirt, I believe all to be bronze . I'd like to know what methods are best to clean and preserve these coins as best as possible. Any ideas would be great. Thnx

    Hey, nice Romans and Byzantines you got there. I soak my ancients with olive oil and clean them with an old toothbrush
