I would approach the cleansing with absolutely no abrasion or scrubbing involved. Try to rinse away as much of the gunk as you can. I hope at that point you can see dates. If you find 1909-S (two varieties), 1914-D, 1931-S.... Please set those aside. They are the valuable dates in a Lincoln set. There are a few more, but these are the costly cents. Try to post photos of those here if you find them and we can help you determine of they merit professional restoration. If your pop had a high grade set, then I would like to see if we could help you keep it that way. Best of luck!
As @Collecting Nut said, photos would help determine what to do.
set them out to dry on a smooth, clean surface.
If the stack of Whitman albums was a foot high (even after swelling up), I wonder if there's more there than just Lincoln cents?
You're right, I should've been more specific.
Im sorry to hear about your dad. Yes it can be salvage and im not surprise that most will have some premium to the right buyer/collector.
