Please Read Before Posting A Topic

In the title please put date, denomination and type of coin design and a brief on what you are asking about.
In example: "1995 Lincoln Cent Missing 5" or "2010 Roosevelt Dime With a Line inside the rim".

All of this helps discern the different topics from each other and is much less confusing to members who want to help.
Topic titles like "how did this happen" or "help" often get ignored and lost in the confusion.

He can go for it. The green will be gone, but the corrosion pits still in the coins.

The concept we are saying here is that the damage will always be there. There is no way to restore them to have nice smooth non-damaged surfaces again😒.

Its like if you have a rusty and pitted tool, you can get rid of the rust, but the pits are there to stay. Unless yuo sand them off. And in this case, sanding the coins will erase a lot more details.

Does this set have the 36 one dot penny or the 53 shoulder fold?
