Coins Being Dug Up 'Lead White'?

Post by detectorman5050 »

I dug these coins up today, and despite their atrocious state I reckon that they are only Victorian. When I dug them up, it struck me how white they were - they actually look like old lead. I've never seen this before. Have you seen copper/bronze coins with this whitening before? I wonder what type of soil condition causes it?
