So I was checking out at walmart and I bought something for like 9.88 or something like that. In any case the lady hands me back some pennies and a dime...I get to the car to dump my change and I looked at my change and it was all silver, I was thinking this is to large to be a dime. It was a wheat penny, I have tons of them, around 5 or 600 of them actually. I thought someone has painted these two silver. Then something struck in my mind. The year 1943...world war...I was thinking no way. I had heard about in class how they had made pennies out of steal or whatever to save the copper. Never thought I'd see one though.
So, I now have 2 1943 steal pennies. I was pretty stoked; one is in horrible shape and had crap all over it the other is in almost mint.
What can I use that is safe for the metal to clean them up a bit.
