Did you try the flame thrower on them? That should clean them up well.

This tread is getting to be a huge mystery . Like Sap says : Silver doesn't corrode . Maybe you should bring those things to a dealer that specializes in shipwreck coins They should be able to identify and retest those things once and for all .

In Memory of Butch L.
and Jim U. rest in peace .

If they were found in a garden, mystery solved. My wife said burying bronze cents in a garden changes the color of some types of flowers (like Hydrangeas) to blue and helps kill fungus that can hurt the plants.

It also probably makes it an EPA Superfund site, but we won't go there.

Hey John , If I were to bury all my copper and bronze Lincolns in the ground I bet I can change the color of all the flowers on my block .
@ fortcollins , not knocking what your wife claims .

Maybe the coins were in a fire?

Hydrangeas color is dependent on the ph of the soil. For instance, my plants can produce pink or blue flowers if you change the ph.
