Hi, Iím new to cleaning. I soaked this coin in distilled water for 24 hrs. then picked at it with a diamond tipped tool(made for Roman coins
) under a microscope. I feel like Iím doing a decent job with it, thereís still
a green patina
and I havenít chipped away any of the features.
My question is, how do I get rid of that last bit
of sand and dirt remaining on the areas I have already done? I canít just keep picking at it. Do I put it back in the water ? A toothbrush and/or Q-tip wonít remove it, Iíve tried. I want to get it as clean as possible.
EDIT: there is actually no green to it, when looking at it with the naked eye. I think I was bugging out looking at it under the microscope.
I posted a before and after picture. I think itís Valens
