Acid "tested" coins (car battery acid)

Recommended Posts

Just got these. Used to be beautiful coins in someone's collection I am sure. Then the person died and it seems the municipality uses ignorants to clean these apartments and recycle unclaimed goods. The ignorant worker used a file and battery acid to test is the coins were of precious metal. Unbelievably ignorant! Seems he sold most of them to a pond shop.

My question now: how do I clean the stains (I already tried bakeing soda)? 



Some are silver some nickel, our "hero" burned them all.

Hi there. You can't reverse the damage and I assume the acid has already worn off. So I doubt you would benefit by cleaning them!
