I have an enameled 1908 Encased Cent. I do not believe that it was done by or for the RCM.

That is not paint. It is dirty and toned. The brass colour is also not paint rather it is from cleaning, rubbing or wear that is quite recent.

It is not paint. It is just surface chemical reaction with something that has come in contact with the bronze at some time in its life. The "wrap-around" that you talk about on the letters is just more of the same thing, but concentrated into the nooks and crannies where normal handling or cleaning can't touch. Also, some of what you are seeing in the "wrap" is some Die Deterioration so that the numbers or letters aren't crisp and appear to be "melting" at the base. That's not paint or "build-up"; it's how a die that was well-worn was striking the coin. If you look at any Vicky, ED or George large cent that has seen circulation, you will see "gunk" that has collected there in those tight spots. Most collectors call it "Vicky gunk" and it is a mixture of human body oil, dirt, grit, and remnants of whatever was on the hands of anyone who handled it for 50-60 years. Just a person's sweat is alkali enough to change the color of bronze or silver. Just go through hundreds of posts on here to hear people talking about removing the gunk with toothpicks, hawthorn thorns, rose thorns or stiff toothbrushes. As far as the discolorations, now you see why large cent collectors have pondered about cleaning coins or not and what can be used to remove it.

If you are already into the third of Rob's books, you are reading too fast. Read slowly so you understand what's going on. I helped where I could with Rob on his first 3, along with a couple other fellow collectors from an older coin site. In the intros to the books, he mentions and thanked those who helped him and all of them check into the CCF site from time to time. Yes, he is a good writer and an even better historian. Some of the dark staining on the early cents will not come off with anything, since it's a chemical reaction and not a paint or coating. Take a few old worthless coins and start trying things to remove evrything.

A long soak in acetone is all I can suggest. Otherwise, this coin has aged into a most appealing mature color which should not be disturbed.

a dealer had this 1859 penny up for 99 cents. I purchased it I knew it was in bad shape. why I wanted this coin, it shows where some one has dipped this coin in acid. what I saw was the white color material. I think they my have been trying to see why. the one thing this white material is very tough material.
