Finally tested out the Verdi-Care coin conserver and here are the results. Used it on a coin with not a lot of verdigris but still looks much better! How does one going about getting the thicker harder verdigris off a coin?

Never clean coins. No one mentioned the different lighting on the before and after pics.

using Verdi-Care isn't cleaning a coin though. This is what the product description is:

"VERDI-CARE™ is designed to work on all metal coin surfaces: gold, silver, copper, brass, etc. No more trial and error, no more guesswork, no more worries. VERDI-CARE™ is safe, gentle and effective as a surface debris remover. VERDI-CARE™ allows collectors to conserve their coins and not strip them clean of luster and original patina. There is a big difference between conservation and cleaning. With VERDI-CARE™ you can be sure not to cross that line due to its safe and gentle nature. Your coins will be conserved, not cleaned. Problems like light surface residue, verdigris and corrosion can now be addressed without resorting to expensive, third-party conservation services."

no it is not cleaning, it is conserving, cleaning ruins original surfaces, this does not.

It's cleaner when you're done right?

I'd say technically it is cleaning it, but not in the sense that most coin collectors use the word cleaning. It is a cleaning that involves no harm or change to the coin's original surfaces.
