Leave the coin in for 30 seconds to a minute (or longer, if necessary) until the as much as the green crud as possible is dissolved. Then remove and rinse with distilled water.

                    I ve used xylol since an EAC member in the early 80 s. when they say to make sure you use it in a well ventilated area, they aren t just being overly cautious.

                      I've used xylol since an EAC member in the early 80's. when they say to make sure you use it in a well ventilated area, they aren't just being overly cautious. That combined with the distilled water rinsing and in my case, some care or blue ribbon lightly brushed on, then into an acid free paper holder.
                       
                      With verdigris, I also won't store them with my other coins...supposedly the coins have to be touching for the verdigris to spread from coin to coin, but why even chance that it can spread airborne when it's pretty easy to just keep them stored separately.
                       
                      I have som guys in another group who purchased that stuff being touted online and ebay that is supposed to eliminate verdigris, and so far, they've had mixed results, but I'm waiting to see if anything happens after a year. When removing verdigris, you will ineveitably leave some pitting, so it's up to the coin owner which he prefers. Regardless of the cleaning, I agree wholeheartly with Fred on keeping the card. Its history, adds something to provenance, and will increase the value to those who like that. It's like owning a Norweb coin with the Norweb holder, with the spider web on it....it's something collectors will pay extra to have.

                      The coin is real, and these "FDC"s were put together
                      by Jim Heine, an active error collector in the
                      San Diego area in the 60's and 70's.

                      I'd suggest using acetone on the Cent when you
                      get it - yes, it should be removed so that the
                      pvc contamination stops; keep the cover - it's
                      a nice momento of the earlier days of the error
                      coin hobby......

                        I've used xylol since an EAC member in the early 80's. when they say to make sure you use it in a well ventilated area, they aren't just being overly cautious. That combined with the distilled water rinsing and in my case, some care or blue ribbon lightly brushed on, then into an acid free paper holder.
                         
                        With verdigris, I also won't store them with my other coins...supposedly the coins have to be touching for the verdigris to spread from coin to coin, but why even chance that it can spread airborne when it's pretty easy to just keep them stored separately.
                         
                        I have som guys in another group who purchased that stuff being touted online and ebay that is supposed to eliminate verdigris, and so far, they've had mixed results, but I'm waiting to see if anything happens after a year. When removing verdigris, you will ineveitably leave some pitting, so it's up to the coin owner which he prefers. Regardless of the cleaning, I agree wholeheartly with Fred on keeping the card. Its history, adds something to provenance, and will increase the value to those who like that. It's like owning a Norweb coin with the Norweb holder, with the spider web on it....it's something collectors will pay extra to have.

                          Mike gave you the safest bet. It will not do anything to hurt the coin. It amazed me when I received some coins I won in the Ford sales...after giving them a good brushing, (light so you don't remove the "good" patina, then using some blue ribbon before storing, the incredible difference. These coins were locked up and untouched for so long, and I recommend brushing copper coins at least every 2nd year, and if possible, once a year. I've since sold the coins, and wish I had saved the before and after photos. These were incredible coins to begin with and just became amazing after the proper preservation steps were taken.

                          Acetone won't harm a copper-alloy cent. Just get a small container at your local hardware or drug store. Leave the coin in for 30 seconds to a minute (or longer, if necessary) until the as much as the green crud as possible is dissolved. Then remove and rinse with distilled water.

                          You can buy it at a hardware store, but usually in huge containers. I still use this little container. I have the 1/2 gallon out in the shed and refill this once a year. (I buy a lot of old coppers and it's the first thing I do. You have to brush the coin afterwards. Then you have to apply care or blue ribbon. I would suggest practicing with this. Don't leave the coin is this. Use a sterile Q-tip, wooden preferred...I forget why, but I went with the EAC suggestions. I've attached a photo of the xylol bottle I got from Rod Burress way back when and I still use it. (refills) Also the brush I use. I have it marked "wet"...others dry, and old ones to use for hard brushing really cruddy coins. I have 6 in total and they are great.
                           
                          Please remember I do not have many Mint State coins. I use the xylol on what I collect, but be careful as it may add a bluish hue to copper, as any preservative might. proper cleaning, or a better word, preservation, is a neccesity with copper coins. Just about every colonial coin you've seen sold through stacks or any other large auction house, slabbed or not slabbed, has had this very process performed.

                          With verdigris, I also won't store them with my other coins...supposedly the coins have to be touching for the verdigris to spread from coin to coin, but why even chance that it can spread airborne when it's pretty easy to just keep them stored separately.
                           
                          I have som guys in another group who purchased that stuff being touted online and ebay that is supposed to eliminate verdigris, and so far, they've had mixed results, but I'm waiting to see if anything happens after a year. When removing verdigris, you will ineveitably leave some pitting, so it's up to the coin owner which he prefers. Regardless of the cleaning, I agree wholeheartly with Fred on keeping the card. Its history, adds something to provenance, and will increase the value to those who like that. It's like owning a Norweb coin with the Norweb holder, with the spider web on it....it's something collectors will pay extra to have.

                          The coin is real, and these "FDC"s were put together
                          by Jim Heine, an active error collector in the
                          San Diego area in the 60's and 70's.

                          I'd suggest using acetone on the Cent when you
                          get it - yes, it should be removed so that the
                          pvc contamination stops; keep the cover - it's
                          a nice momento of the earlier days of the error

                            When you use the qtip with xylol, you'll see the pale green on the qtip....you can see the green on the brush picture I sent in the last email. This is what comes off of 250 year old copper coins. And once the preservative is applied, and the coin is in acid free envelope or sent to be slabbed, you won't have to worry about going to the bank, taking your attractive coin out to look at that you haven't seen in a few years, and find it's loaded up with verdgris.

                            Xylol is xylene.
                             
                            ***Learn about xylol before using it. Never let a coin soak in Xylol. Always brush a coin before and after applying and then apply a little care or blue ribbon and if you wish to not use xylol, the brushing and addition of a thin layer of the preservative is recommended for long term storage.
                             
                            ***I NEVER do this with Mint State coins, but some do. It may affect toning.

                             
                            You can buy it at a hardware store, but usually in huge containers. I still use this little container. I have the 1/2 gallon out in the shed and refill this once a year. (I buy a lot of old coppers and it's the first thing I do. You have to brush the coin afterwards. Then you have to apply care or blue ribbon. I would suggest practicing with this. Don't leave the coin is this. Use a sterile Q-tip, wooden preferred...I forget why, but I went with the EAC suggestions. I've attached a photo of the xylol bottle I got from Rod Burress way back when and I still use it. (refills) Also the brush I use. I have it marked "wet"...others dry, and old ones to use for hard brushing really cruddy coins. I have 6 in total and they are great.
                             
                            Please remember I do not have many Mint State coins. I use the xylol on what I collect, but be careful as it may add a bluish hue to copper, as any preservative might. proper cleaning, or a better word, preservation, is a neccesity with copper coins. Just about every colonial coin you've seen sold through stacks or any other large auction house, slabbed or not slabbed, has had this very process performed.

                              Mike gave you the safest bet. It will not do anything to hurt the coin. It amazed me when I received some coins I won in the Ford sales...after giving them a good brushing, (light so you don't remove the "good" patina, then using some blue ribbon before storing, the incredible difference. These coins were locked up and untouched for so long, and I recommend brushing copper coins at least every 2nd year, and if possible, once a year. I've since sold the coins, and wish I had saved the before and after photos. These were incredible coins to begin with and just became amazing after the proper preservation steps were taken.

                              Acetone won't harm a copper-alloy cent. Just get a small container at your local hardware or drug store. Leave the coin in for 30 seconds to a minute (or longer, if necessary) until the as much as the green crud as possible is dissolved. Then remove and rinse with distilled water.

                                Xylol is xylene.
                                 
                                ***Learn about xylol before using it. Never let a coin soak in Xylol. Always brush a coin before and after applying and then apply a little care or blue ribbon and if you wish to not use xylol, the brushing and addition of a thin layer of the preservative is recommended for long term storage.
                                 
                                ***I NEVER do this with Mint State coins, but some do. It may affect toning.

                                 
                                You can buy it at a hardware store, but usually in huge containers. I still use this little container. I have the 1/2 gallon out in the shed and refill this once a year. (I buy a lot of old coppers and it's the first thing I do. You have to brush the coin afterwards. Then you have to apply care or blue ribbon. I would suggest practicing with this. Don't leave the coin is this. Use a sterile Q-tip, wooden preferred...I forget why, but I went with the EAC suggestions. I've attached a photo of the xylol bottle I got from Rod Burress way back when and I still use it. (refills) Also the brush I use. I have it marked "wet"...others dry, and old ones to use for hard brushing really cruddy coins. I have 6 in total and they are great.
                                 
                                Please remember I do not have many Mint State coins. I use the xylol on what I collect, but be careful as it may add a bluish hue to copper, as any preservative might. proper cleaning, or a better word, preservation, is a neccesity with copper coins. Just about every colonial coin you've seen sold through stacks or any other large auction house, slabbed or not slabbed, has had this very process performed.

                                I've used xylol since an EAC member in the early 80's. when they say to make sure you use it in a well ventilated area, they aren't just being overly cautious. That combined with the distilled water rinsing and in my case, some care or blue ribbon lightly brushed on, then into an acid free paper holder.
                                 
                                With verdigris, I also won't store them with my other coins...supposedly the coins have to be touching for the verdigris to spread from coin to coin, but why even chance that it can spread airborne when it's pretty easy to just keep them stored separately.
                                 
                                I have som guys in another group who purchased that stuff being touted online and ebay that is supposed to eliminate verdigris, and so far, they've had mixed results, but I'm waiting to see if anything happens after a year. When removing verdigris, you will ineveitably leave some pitting, so it's up to the coin owner which he prefers. Regardless of the cleaning, I agree wholeheartly with Fred on keeping the card. Its history, adds something to provenance, and will increase the value to those who like that. It's like owning a Norweb coin with the Norweb holder, with the spider web on it....it's something collectors will pay extra to have.

                                      I see my question was already answered-thanks Fred! 

                                      Do you know if there are many of these still around? I know I've come across them a time or two.

                                        Hi Nathan,

                                        It's struck through grease. There are a number of 1989-P 25c which are missing the mintmark due to being struck through grease, which covered the mintmark area. They're worth less than a $1. They received a lot of publicity when they where initially found, and I've heard they sold for a lot of money at the time (although not anymore.)

                                        Jon

                                        I see my question was already answered-thanks Fred! 

                                        Do you know if there are many of these still around? I know I've come across them a time or two.

                                        Thanks,
                                        Jon

                                          Hi Nathan,

                                          It's struck through grease. There are a number of 1989-P 25c which are missing the mintmark due to being struck through grease, which covered the mintmark area. They're worth less than a $1. They received a lot of publicity when they where initially found, and I've heard they sold for a lot of money at the time (although not anymore.)

                                          Jon

                                          Hey there,
                                           
                                          Forgive me for butting in here, I haven't used this forum for a very long time but I need to ask a question about a coin. I just found a 1989 quarter that has no mint mark at all, do any of you know anything about this kind of error?....there is only a small indication of a raised area but it's too low for the mint mark's placement.
