I would not clean those, they are nice the way they are, and become closer to bullion value if you do clean them.

The 21 might not be a bad coin if you wanted to practice or experiment on with dipping, but there's no real upside in attempting to conserve any of them

Might I ask why you'd want to clean them? If for better eye appeal of a personal preference an acetone dip and nothing more ("dip"- don't wipe dry/scrub). However, keep the above replies in mind as to value.

@Ballyhoo As I am a newbie to the more in depth part of coin collecting, the acetone and dipping are new to me. I heard when I was younger to not clean my coins but I hear and see the dipping and what not going on. Just curious on the idea of it. I admire the history or story behind each coin I save (even though its just not knowing exactly where it has been)
Thank you everyone on the input for these.
