At least get a brush and gently clean out all of the dirt and grit. Then I would just put it in a cardboard coin holder.

I wouldn't advise doing any cleaning other than maybe letting it soak in hot water for a little bit and try rinsing it off. The coin is so badly damaged there is little to no value so cleaned or dirty it will not effect the value at all. I would leave it alone and just put it in a flip. although it's corroded its original and hasn't been messed with.

I use boiling peroxide on indians too. Put them in for about 1/2 a minute to a minute. Take it out, let it dry, then rub it between your fingers. The oil on your finger will darken the details. If there is not enough oil on your fingers then rub your fingers across your forehead to pick up some. This method works well for me. But, if you ever find silver do not rub it.
Oldest coins: KG II Halfpence (1727-1760), Liberty Cap 1/2 cent (1795-1797), 1808 1/2 Real.
