    My clean up brought a little life back to it lol. Got I think some copper bleed and a pitting but had to be harsh with the electrolysis to get that burnt in crud out. I'm surprised it cleaned up like this I can deal with the copper bleed or whatever that is

    Well I'm extremely surprised at this result. I said what the heck and let it have a long bath in vinegar sitting on aluminum foil. I boiled it and let it sit. After awhile washed it off and got this result. It ended up looking better then I expected. Click image for larger version.

    Great find !

    Yes, if it was mine ... I'd put it in an Electrolysis Bath.
    I've cleaned a few Silver coins in similar condition that way - they came out pretty good.

    Good Luck !

    First I had tried aluminum and vinegar boiling and no effect. Then came electrolysis, it took taking the coin out and rinsing it off and putting it back in a few time and it still looked eh, then I said F it and tried the aluminum and vinegar approach again let it sit for a long time and it worked wonders

    That came out pretty nice after all that work.

    Congratulations - I think SLQ are one of the best US coin designs.

    I had some times I wasn't sure if it was going to work. But I figured I had nothing to lose so hit it on electrolysis high power and risked a long boiling vinegar bath then a tooth brush and tooth paste treatment. Took me awhile to clean one coin.

    Really excellent result and congrats on your first one, my all-time favorite design!.....and yes, that detail around the rim on the obverse is the very first thing to wear down so that coin was indeed lost when it was fairly new, before 1935, IMO.....and it's a 1929-S but I'm sure you expected that being from CA..... congrats again and nice job on the cleaning!

    HH all!
