I have looked at over 200 coins in the last hour none have corners.

Go Up Go Down

I've started to experiment with some pennies. These are just common - average ciruclated pennies that I'm putting into the penny folder (Harris/Whitman) that I collect together with my daughter. So I've done two tests here:
1) Baking soda - a little bit of this in the bottom of a sink and rub my fingers against the penny with the baking soda, and it gets a lot of the dirt/grime off, and looks much better for the album!
2) Vinegar bath - my wife heard from her dad who collects coins said to soak them in a vinegar bath for 24 hours. Again, we just tested this on 1/2 dozen of the extras that I'm going to send back to the bank cause I don't need them. She dropped them into the bath last night, and this morning they're starting to look really nice!
3) Toothpaste - I haven't done this test yet, but I plan to. I also read that this is a very mild abraisive and works somewhat similar to the baking soda method.

Again, for just common-average circulated coins I think this is a pretty good idea to clean them up and have them look half way decent.

Most Silver coins pulled from the ground look just about the way they was dropped.

Silver has issues with Sulfur.

It blackens them or a cool cobalt blue.

I have found silver coins on the surface that was blue due to the  Light, UV effect on silver.

If undisturbed, they would be blue on one side only.

Silver is the basis of the Photographic Film.

Just like GOLD the Noble Metal, Silver stays Silver unless exposed to other stuff.

Water finds of silver like Reales in salt water is another matter.

What is Salt?

Salt is just that, Salts of some type of Metal.


I Have found A  Reale in Florida East coast and it looked like a Crunchy peace of junk until  I cleaned it a bit!

This is a True BS Report!
