And if it doesn't work, you can always have the shrimp on toast!

hah very nice...!
Ok thanks guys...I have a sonicator on its way already, so I'll try that out. I just found someone who can sell me a relatively cheap lab shaker/incubator, so I might try that as well. I guess that I can always resell it if it doesn't do much!

keep notes, and have some in other containers for comparison. Results might be interesting.

Yeah that's a very good idea. I'm going to approach this with the 'scientific method', and see what happens.
As long as the encrustation/dirt is composed of different material than the coin and its patina, you would think that there would be some sort of way of speed up the cleaning process without harming the coin and patina.

OK, you have fun with that. See if you come to the conclusion that at the end of the day, stick 'em in a tub with distilled water, change when it becomes cloudy, periodic brushing with a cheap cut down toothbtush and occasional picking gets you there any faster :)
