Worn 1920S & what should I do with it?

2 posts in this topic

Not sure what my long term plans are for it. Short term I would like to not let it get worse and not ruin the coin if it is worth saving. I read stuff on the internet about vinegar and salt to clean pennies...then again I read both good and bad things about bailing out the banks.


The two sets of photos are out of my scanner and photographs.


Sorry for the orientation. Photobucket is winning the fight against me.


So, how bad off is this rough penny and what would you do about it?

Definitely don't use vinegar and salt! Holy geez.... I'm shuddering just thinking about that. That would leave a stripped pink, bare naked, totally ugly piece of copper.... Ugh. There are a couple of green spots on it, but nothing deserving that.


Your coin looks to grade around VG.... and at that level the price guide says 50 cents.... but in reality you'll never get that for it. I'd say give it to a YN, or put it in an album.
