The collectors in the 30-50s. They used to clean their coins trying to keep the mint look on the coins. But ruined a lot of them because they cleaned and altered them.

@ coop, I wonder if boiling the coin would soften the old lacquer without killing the coin? I haven't tried that with lacquer, but it worked for coins that were wrapped in Scotch tape to "preserve" them. I used a plastic spaghetti strainer suspended in a pot of boiling distilled water. Heat sure works to take old lacquer off doors and window frames.

What do you think? Too risky?

Heat can affect coins, sometimes not in a good way. If you use water, you have make sure they are thoroughly to make sure the green doesn't set in on them.
