    I was told to use 5g SS and 95ml distilled water solution to remove Verdigris from bronze. Is this correct? After the 14 days of soaking (2 times), I’m sure you rinse with distilled water? And then pat dry? Thoughts?

    Well, here I go. I hope this works. I have the 5g and 100ml of water in a glass container with a cover. Hopefully it gets rid of that gawd awful green turd !

    Happy to report its working. It’s amazing what verdigris can do to a metal like bronze. It literally is eating away the surface. Ouch. I’m afraid it will get UNC details. Oh well. I tried. I’ll take pictures. I’m going to soak for another week and then a week in just distilled water...and do before and after pictures

    I was looking at a Beautiful Fugio in a no problem PCGS holder which looked great - until I saw that bit o green on the dial of the obverse. I wonder if it came after it got encapsulated.

    Found this thread researching verdigris removal. Some of you are still around. Wanting to know if any of you actually tried this and what was thew results if so.

    Seems impossible to buy verdicare anywhere and Badthad hasn't been around for a long time, so curious if any of you regulars actually tried this.
