Re: Cleaning coins

December 20, 2016 01:06PM
The only method that i use for cleaning coins without damaging them is by using a very soft toothbrush under running water,the amount of times that i have seen folks over here in the UK find a lovely silver hammer coin say maybe 2000 years old and they render it basically scrap by trying various chemicals,abrasives and many other things that can and will harm a coin.

Coin collectors if its a rare or valuable coin prefer to see it as it was found,if in doubt as they say 'dont' clean it apart running tap water.Of course this is just my opinion but over the years have seen some stunning rare coin and artifacts that have been ruined by folks cleaning them and not really having a clue what they are doing.
