Watching the cleaning is fascinating. Sure wish my uncleaned coins were that easy  :)

Hillingdon hoard

This is some great video of the cleaning a Hillingdon Hoard potin coin.  Cleaned using only a toothbrush, a toothpick, and a spot of water.  Brilliant! 
I rather like the reporting, which points out the coin type ("flat linear"), with a stylized Apollo and Charging Bull, and the potin alloy of lead, tin, and copper.
