This is the best example of a bar nickel I've found yet. Any advice is greatly appreciated!

Acetone and a 2x2.

I'm glad you said that John. I can't do acetone. I had a real reaction to it when I tried. So what else can I use to clean a coin? I have a possible DDO Kennedy that has all kinds of funk on it.

@Newbie234
Are you sure you used 99% technical grade acetone? It shouldn't cause any damage. If you used something like nail polish remover then, yes, it could've been detrimental to your coin. There is pretty much nothing else you can do that wouldn't make your coin get a details grade.

Also, there is a rumor that coins that contain copper will react to acetone in presence of light and water, however I don't know if it's true. If it is, maybe that's what caused the reaction.

Dom I did use acetone and my reaction was to myself not the coin. I did have gloves on and didn't touch the coin at all until I had patted it dry with paper towels. The weird thing is I'm not allergic to anything.....except acetone!

Distilled water and very mild soap and a super soft toothbrush. Be gentle.
