After the acid bath

May 23, 2021 11:36AM
For those that may be interested, a lot of of your brass/copper relics can go into 'acid magic' that you can find at the local big box stores. About $10 for nearly a gallon. Essentially just diluted muriatic acid (hyrdachloride).

If you don't leave it too long, it will just eat the dirt/lime scale/alkaline buildup off the dessert find. Rinse, hit the items with a brass brush,, and then rewash in fresh water.

If you prefer shiny looking objects to the brown/whiteish appearance of many of the old finds, you may like this.

Posted are pics of the hosiery clips i found and cleaned....along w/ a few other items. One i particularly like is the one stamped Paris 1871.
