Default Badge cleanup

Found this 1909 Miles City Mont badge. Little fire encrusted, that I'd really like to clean up.
Appears to be gold plated

Any ideas on what would remove the slag !!
Thanks

Default vinegar

I use vinegar on old brass and copper items. Start at 15 minute intervals.

Thanks.
I'll try it. Working on a Barber dime with the same crust before I try the badge.
