Hi, my name is MikeF and I'm a degenerate coin collector. I also like adventure, big trucks, long walks on the beach and the Kansas City Chiefs.

It kinda looks like it was painted with silver spray paint.

Sounds like a good bet, with the paint now wearing off.

Old gimmick of dipping in silver paint to hide problems and make it "look new". Problem is there is no silver paint that looks like silver.

An acetone bath might help. Nothing to lose by giving it a try.

I agree with Andy... dip it in acetone.

Certainly a good one to try acetone on even if it is for the first time. Just remember to do a final rinse with fresh acetone (preferably flowing) so whatever it is does not end up back on the coin as the acetone evaporates.
