    NGC has a subsidiary service for cleaning coins. They are located just down the street from where NGC grade coins. You can ask NGC to clean them for you. Used to be about $30.00 a few years ago. I would leave it up to them. I think they may go by NCS or something similar. It has been a few years..and I'm getting older...haha.

    I've seen before and after pictures and looks like they do a great job on a different forum.

    Yes, I think both NGC and PCGS both conserve/restore coins. The funny, not funny thing is, if you or I do it, it's called cleaning and is considered a bad thing. When they do it, they charge you for it, do the same exact thing (a quick dip in acetone or EZ Est and a soft scrub with a Q Tip), and all of a sudden it's called "conservation". Ha ha ha! I'm sensing a double standard here!

    Would the acetone remove the sometimes coveted "toning" ?
    live for today, admit your faults, do the right thing (even if you don't want to) & trust God!

    Exactly what yellowsnow said. The acetone will only remove the sticky stuff that isn't supposed to be there anyway. Toning won't/shouldn't be affected.
