Post a picture. It was probably dipped in something.
Speaking of vinegar: I have a friend who wanted me to evaluate his pennies, both lincoln and Indian Head. He brought them to me and I was almost crying. The FIRST Lincoln Cent I looked at was a 1909 S. I ask him what made him want to soak them in vinegar and he wanted them to be nice and clean for me. He had others that WOULD HAVE BEEN semi valuable if he had not ruined them in vinegar. Why would ANYONE who collects even consider a vinegar soak???
Welcome to CT Debi. You need to start your own post WITH PHOTOS in order to elicit worthwhile answers. Coins aren't "pressed". Good luck.
BTW, here is my spiel on photos.
You should always post in focus FULL IMAGE photos (after you upload your photo, two buttons appear: Thumbnail and Full Image, click Full Image and your photo appears full size on your post and is easily enlarged by clicking on it). Photograph coins on neutral backgrounds like black, grey, or white. Crop out superfluous background so just the coin shows, and post photos with correct orientation so members don't have to turn their computer in some awkward fashion to view it properly. While it isn’t always necessary, it is nice to show both the obverse and reverse, even if your question is just about one side. Members can often give more valuable information having both sides to evaluate. Add close ups of areas you have questions about and make your questions as definitive as possible so we know what you are asking for. And try to have the best lighting possible to show the most favorable photo of the coin. Hope this helps in the future. Good luck.
Trying to place a value on a complete set without seeing the coins is too difficult to give an estimate. Even the 1909-1929 set is over 60 coins. The 1909 S VDB in F-15 is at least an $800 coin.
I don’t see a pic
