Help!!!

Can someone PLEASE email me and tell me how to clean, carefully, an old roll
of 1943 steel pennies?  Any home remedies?  Anything I can buy?

Thanks!!!

Richard

Can't someone give me an answer?  What kind of newsgroup is this, anyway.

It's a newsgroup, not a chat room. If you have a little patience, someone
who might be able to help you just might sign on and read your message.
Of course, then again maybe not...they don't get paid too much to answer
these kinds of questions and some of them are considered "grumpy" because
of that. Lie very still and they might not eat you first...

Sorry for the delay, "Doctor".

Re cleaning of old steel cents: I'd recommend Comet cleanser and steel
wool -- that should get most of the grime off.

HTH! HAND!

I thought everyone was showing remarkable restraint by laying off
the steel wool and baking soda remarks.

The kind of group that doesn't appreciate someone insulting us just
because we dared not to answer a question within a few hours of it being
posted. The kind that expects you to read your answer here if you posted
your question here. This may come as a shock to you, but you are not
owed an answer. The people who post here do so because they enjoy it and
those that share their knowledge do so out of the goodness of their
hearts (a bit melodramatic perhaps, but basically correct). While some
of the people who post questions here have the good graces and common
decency to post a simple "thank you", many do not but at least they do
not complain about waiting a day or two for an answer. There, now you
have an answer. When you acquire some manners, ask again and you'll
likely get a response.

Pardon me for intruding here but that's hilarious!

No, those things are much too harsh.  Might damage the paper.

From the tone of the original post, he probably should have
called 911 in the first place.

I shouldn't laugh.  For all I know, the "Doctor" could have a
patient right there on the operating table who is in desperate
need of a sterile roll of "pennies".

It shouldn't take a Ph.D. to figure out he could get 5000 responses
if we were *too*  helpful, or to track his own thread.

I've found everyone here very responsive, but it
usually takes at least a day.

Ain't it a *** that no one bothered to drop
everything they were doing and answer your question!
Not everyone spends all day online waiting to answer
your questions! Geeze...6 hours and no reply...
Must be kind of tough to wait, ain't it?

Maybe you should punish us all by going away, or at
the very least spend your time using your belt sander,
with 60 grit paper, to clean your coins!

Probably should've gone to a "serious numismatic forum" and asked

Actually, I've had much better luck with Brillo pads. If that doesn't work,
my Makita hand sander usually buffs up the particularly *** ones quite
nicely!
