       I was wondering if anyone could help me with cleaning up some coins, mainly newer quarters, dimes and nickels.  I live in the East Kentucky Mountains and have a bag full of black coins ( due to the zinc in them I believe) that I've found over the years and I have tried almost everything to clean them but still have a bag load of black coins. ANY IDEAS???  THANKS TED Coffee

Hello, Ted.

       I moved your post from Chit Chat to a more appropriate board where it is more likely to get answered.   In fact if you scan the previous posts on this board, you may find the answer you are looking for.
       By the way, you say you've tried almost everything to clean them, but you haven't said what you have tried.   If you could elaborate, that would help our members keep from suggesting ideas you have already tried.   One thing you definitely want to do is separate the copper/zinc pennies from the rest of the coins.   Most of the folks here tumble their coins or use electrolysis---both of which are covered in previous posts.
