Anyone think this could be or should be cleaned up? Electrolysis? Havenít found anything iron that was worth cleaning before and donít want to destroy it, that and itís not mine, my buddy dug it.
I also added a pic of a clean one from eBay, itís cast iron.

In my opinion I think that is worth cleaning.
Electrolysis should do it.

It will not be as nice as the ebay one but all the scale will be removed to clean iron so it can be preserved.
