How to Clean a Coin that's been buried in the ground

I've been asked many times "how do you clean your coins"? So this past winter I recorded this video to demonstrate my technique. Every coin is different and in this case the large cent that I'm working on was in very poor condition, so I'm really goin at it. Take care at first to use a soft touch.  The goal is to remove the build-up while preserving the natural surface patina. I hope this is helpful, let me know!
