Great find, but totally beyond any sort of conservation.

Could be a cull.
This coin would be too worn to include in any part of my collection.
Just put it back in circulation.
I have done this with old worn coins myself.

Awesome find! You could try using warm water, mild soap and a toothbrush to make it look better. Since it's a cull coin already, it wouldn't matter if it was cleaned or not.
