Did you check the MM placement? To ensure it is not a copy?
There is a good amount of detail left on that one that I would want it professionally conserved.
ICG charges $5 if you want conservation when you're having it graded / slabbed ($10 economy tier for Coin Talk members, though you have to mention that you are one, I'm told), not sure that this is offered separately nor how comprehensive it is.
That would be the best right there. They would also authenticate the coin.
My preference for copper is xylene. Then follow up with verti care. Acetone may cause a pink color though others here may disagree. Acetone may be ok for a quick dip or a short soak. Going off of the pictures I think this coin is going require an extended soak therefore my recommendation is xylene vs acetone. Just my opinion based on instructions I received on this site from very knowledgeable people and my trial practice on junk coins and my experience in coin conservation.
With out having your opinions interrupt this thread. All TPG's over grade and under grade. None ae infallible. ICG would be plenty fine in this instance where the coin is one if not the most faked date and MM in the series. They will conserve it (if able) authenticate it and slab it for protection.
Or even nail polish remover!!!
@Insider can speak to that. Right now, I would probably give it a hot water bath and a rinse with distilled water and dry thoroughly to stop any more bad stuff.
