Just pulled this from a Loomis roll this morning.

Not the best shape do you think a 20 min bath in Acetone would help it at all?

thanks for looking

Nice fined, Verdi-Care is your best bet IF you want to improve it.

I would avoid verdi and only give it a quick acetone dip not a soak.

Thanks and appreciate the info. I'll have to get some of the Verdi-Care. I have never worked with either of them before but Acetone they say is Okay for coins - just worried that I would damage it.

So a quick dip and then let it air dry?

Cleaning coins reduces their value. The variety is plainly visible. Nice find.

Thanks CM - I know that is why I have never done so - I thought it might look better in general on the Obverse.
I have read that an acetone bath - so long as you don't rub it with something is not considered a "cleaned" coin?
I will leave it as is at least for now.

A bath is cleaning. It's really more important with the more valuable coins. Even when PCGS "conserves" one, they drop it a grade. Still, a nice coin whether you clean it or not.

Congrats as well. I've found only two myself, they're not as easy to find as the 2000. Yours looks to be in pretty good condition, you might try to seal it to keep it from rotting any more, may extend its life.
