If I'm not mistaken, Brasso leaves behind a residue which is supposed to stop tarnish. You'll need to wash it thoroughly in hot, soapy water with a trace of ammonia to strip the Brasso from the surfaces.


Once your coin is back to the clean metal, retoning will begin. Give it 20 years in a cheap manila or wrapped in that 1st grader's wide ruled paper and your penny will be back up to snuff.
