Thanks to the generosity of a forum member who sent me this coin I performed a conservation tonight - thought I'd share it.

A beautiful coin marred with a single, tiny spot of verdigris. This is exactly why I developed VERDI-CARE™. The total time for this conservation was about 20 minutes. Applied a tiny amount of VC to the tip of a toothpick, touched the spot and formed a small "dome" over the it. Let it sit there for 15 minutes then gently rotated the tip of the toothpick over spot - taking care to keep the VC from spreading too much. Carefully dabbed off the excess and rinsed with acetone.

Verdi-Care is a great product. Having used it a number of times with noticeable results. The difference when I use it I
soak the coin in acetone first then use the VC. You state the opposite. What way is best?

Thanks!

It all depends on the coin and the amount of conservation work. In this case, the coin came from an OBW roll so it was pristine. Acetone was not needed to pre-remove anything from the coin.

i wonder how a TPG would see the resulting mark. would they say it was cleaned? would they not even notice it the remaining mark? would they knock the grade due to it? it would be interesting to see that.
