Have I told you that my brother's stamp and coin collection got soaked?

I think the stamps are a lost cause.

But have spent countless hours each evening for the past 2 weeks restoring order to the coin collection, Spent $100 on supplies (coin folders, those books that you put the coins in by date). I've finished migrating over 20 of the books from the water-damaged books to new one. In some cases I found more coins to add to fill missing spots (from my big pile of coins) so a slight expansion while I'm doing it.

Hope to finish up this weekend so that I can get the stuff off my DR table.

Some of the coins oxidized (?). Are they lost or can I clean them?
