I just got this dirty-looking silver coin and I was wondering what would be the best method to clean it up a bit. I know that cleaning coins is generally discouraged, but I picked this one up for my world silver collection at near melt value, and I don't believe it has much of a numismatic premium. It looks like it was buried in the ground for years, and it makes my hands dirty when I touch it. Any ideas for how to get the muck off this coin?

A good first shot would be a nice bath in acetone (taking the necessary safety precautions of course).

Looks like this one has had some time in direct soil burial,
then found and has been given a gentle as possible clean up, already.

My guess for the clean up method was a gentle rubbing with a clean cotton rag in water.

Looks like some pretty embedded environmental damage - doubt much will help this one.
