NEVER CLEAN A COIN. CLEANING RUINS VALUE.

Look, also, at the picture on the left. Someone tried to make a circulated coin look uncirculated by cleaning it with chemicals. Not only can you plainly see the wear on the coin, the chemicals have given it a hiddeous color. The value of that coin is down to zero. Knowledgable collectors will not buy cleaned coins.

Coin: 3629 , Genre: Colonizers and Colonies
