OOPS I got side tracked about your question
DON’T acid bath it !!!
DON’T Rust magic it !
NO Vinegar !!!
All the metal just soak in a penetrating oil like PB Blaster Kroil etc then brush with steel wool scotchbrite or the like only work on rusty portions, Flatten the sole, iron, breaker and frog.
100+ years to get a patina and ruin it with rust buster YIKES !!!!!!!!
