NO BONDO SOLID AS A ROCK, PEOPLE ALWAYS SAY "ROBIN I DON'T KNOW WHO'S HOTTER YOUR ASS, OR YOUR PERFECT RUN OF EVERY SMALL CENT EVER MADE??? ME OF COURSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"...SHADY OLD TIMERS WILL SAY "NEVER CLEAN YOUR COINS", THEY DON'T WANT YOU TO SEE THE NICE BONDO JOB THATS BEEN DONE TO IT. NOT ALWAYS BY THEM, BUT BY DEALERS AND ENGRAVERS OVER THE PAST 75 YEARS, BROWN COINS WITH BLACK SPOTS HAVE BEEN FILLED IN WITH LEAD A COMMON PRACTICE WITH LARGE CENTS ESP. AROUND THE EDGES, THIS WAS THE LAST COIN TO BE HAND FINISHED SO SPLITTING AROUND THE EDGES IS NORMAL BUT LOTS OF THEM ARE FILLED IN W/LEAD AND PAINTED, AND AFTER 50 YEARS THE GRIME LOOKS GOOD ENOUGH TO MAKE SOMEONE RICH, OR BREAK YOUR BANK, I HAVE HAD TO THROW AWAY TWO COIN'S BE CAREFULL WHAT YOU RESTORE.THE N.G.C. RESTORES AND CLEANS FOR THIS REASON FOR A HIGHER GRADE. JUST PUT YOUR COPPER OR BRONZE IN A BOWL OF WATER FOR DAYS, WEEKS OR A MO. AN PAT IT DRY, THEN A COAT OF BEESWAX WILL PROTECT IT FOR A DECADE AND THATS IT NO ANCHENT CHINIEES SECRET.
