Brillo pad or steel wool maybe? Angle die grinder and 3m pad, I'm sure would buff it out.

Distilled White Vinegar

Then, polish with an abrasive (e.g toothpaste) if desired.

Careful grinding any jig heads........ lead dust floating around is not good.  I suppose you could possibly do it if you were very careful about the location and wore a mask, but that dust will get everywhere.

Put them in vinegar they will be shiny as new. Rinse with water well them blow dry them . Warning brown or uncoated hook will rust over night rinsed or not .

Vinegar is a great idea thanks. I always love tips like that, any thing I already have under the sink is awesome.

If you want to avoid the possibility of lead dust contamination, melt the lead off the hooks and re-pour. Oxidized surface lead is generally soft or has been exposed to a corrosive atmosphere with moisture, salt, or acidic components. Adding 4% tin to soft lead and storing castings as airtight as possible will enable shiny castings to remain so indefinitely.
