broken compass, your 1/4 Anna Sailana 1912 reminded me of this ebay auction which I tried to get but was blown out by the final bid of $122!  Its a nice coin but for $122 I'm not so sure.   http://www.ebay.com/itm/290637746795

haha I was following it very closely too! I might have bid $130 for it but I am sure someone might have outbid me. 

It's a beauty! It is the going price for Sailana state coins these days. A few days before this auction this hap(the below link), kind of setting the baseline for the coin you bid on.

Here it is, just salvaged! I think I got it for $3 back in the day! Not sure how it will grade. I've put it in an air-tight holder.

Anil, Vaseline or coconut oil in my opinion just makes it look as if it is not rusted but I don't know if any of those techniques are good ways to prevent it from rusting. 

What kind of coins are they? What grade are they? Are there pictures of your coins? Perhaps if people in the forum can look at it, they can suggest the best way to preserve them.
