Not worth the effort to clean it.

Probably beyond restoration - I don't think anthing will make much difference. Soap and water won't hurt.

Damaged and corroded. Even in mint state these are worth very little. Agree with Frog, soap and running water won't hurt this as it's basically a slug.

Your 43 steel cent is rusted and beat . Just throw it into your cull box .

Don't clean in, in fact, don't clean any coin.

Welp, In God We Rust...

Guess I'll try soap and water then (just for this coin).
