I think the last picture I posted is better
Got a photo of the reverse?
This. Dark toning as a result of environmental factors.
It's an auto shop trick to get the crusty off of cupholder coins. any oil will work though and the cleaner the better as far as how it look after a quick soak, but if you miss one or two in the oil pan, it goes into the used oil barrel, and eventually it gets pumped off and someone goes through the bits at the bottom and says "score I made 50 cents!" tosses them in the parts washer, pats em dry with a shop rag and then buys a can of soda out of the machine.
I know, it's an elaborate story. I've been that guy and it was common in the collision shop I worked at when I was much younger, free soda from the machine! The customers really don't want their crusty coins (never once heard a complaint in 2 years there, all the techs did it) and they all preferred you give them a nice clean car back with interior detail after you're finished working on it. Never taking like bills or valuables of course (that never happened beyond coins being there) and never taking their trunk junk they forgot about but we'd organize it in an orderly fashion so that would be neat too. But the loose crusty coins were fair game.
