I have this 1922 D Peace dollar. Do you think this coin would benefit from a rinsing (distilled water/acetone/xylene process)? The hair and feather lines are pretty good but to get a better look may involve cleaning. Advise would be greatly appreciated. These are the best pictures I can get at this time.
Thank you,
Chris

I've never used xylene, but I don't see where either of the other two options would help.

I found this article on the Lincoln Cent Forum that I found interesting. I am going to try it on some non-valuable coins first.

IF that was mine, I would have dipped in ezest. Does not hurt it if done correctly, but sure could make it look better. Note: I hate toned coins with a passion so others might say ignore that.
Rookie with bad eyes, take what I say with a grain of salt and call an expert in the morning!

The coin will look better without the toning, but with the obverse rim damaged by 2 o'clock, why bother?
