Digital image stabilization can only do so much for my shaky hands, let me know if you need me to try again with the pictures if these won't do.

Virdigris is the green stuff. I would grade that cull. Avoid coins like this and certainly don't store it with other coins, as the virdigris can spread.

Would some time in distilled water help a coin like this?

VG details

There's is no way to save this coin, the verdigris is heavy. The thick stuff cannot be removed without damaging the surfaces.
