Thanks Incognito - all makes sense. All of the general field muck is off the coins and from around the edges. Trying to do anything else would damage them.
I think there's a good chance I won't be seeing the coins again (FLO, landowner, tenant farmer) but on the off chance I get to keep them I'll have a chat with some colleagues to see if there's anything that can be done to separate them. Fingers crossed the owner and tenant would prefer a 1958 shilling and broken crotal bell :D - I doubt it.
