    I got a wheat cent today with verdis on it, even though it was still red. I tried to use acetone on it, but as expected, that didn't work.

    Look at this oddity

    Just curious, but do you enjoy torturing people's eyes with your photos? ;)

    Not trying to be mean here, just giving advice. They are old, well circulated pretty common wheat cents. Have you ever given any thought to using an old soft toothbrush and some water to clean them up? It's not gonna hurt their value really but might make them more bearable.
