    As many of you know i collect allot of Silver !! 10 OZ Bars mostly but some ASE,S
    as well and other assorted Silver items, but over time Silver can become down right
    Ugly :( toning and tarnishing though it really doesnt bring down the price from a bullion
    Perspective in can substantially affect the price of an "Art Bar" so what are your
    Options ? You can dip it in a nasty solution :( or some other harsh chemical or you can
    Use this stuff ( Wrights Silver Cream) it,s about $3.00 for an 8 oz jar, comes with a sponge for application and the only warning on the label is just done get any in your
    Eyes most other,s i have say skin irritant but it,s a good idea to use skin and eye protection anyway, but this stuff really works wonder,s here are a couple before and
    After pics on some bars that were already out of there original packaging, but even in
    An air tite environment you will get toning and tarnishing to an extent.

    Your silver, your choice. The silver polish cream will leave scratches on the surface. These will be only visible under magnification and tilting the object to get the light just right. For these items that would not be too bad, but for uncirculated or proof coins, might as well use a wire brush.

    I'd be concerned about the effects of the application of this product, two or three years down the road.........

    For items like this, I would use the washing soda/aluminum foil method instead.

    The question, for you, should not be what it looks like today, but what it looks like tomorrow. Or are you going to repeat this the day before you sell.

    This stuff is abrasive free, and as gentle as a baby,s butt, no harsh chemicals
    and i always use a polishing cloth, great way to clean things up that are dull and dingy...LOL, but it sure beats the heck out of dipping !

    For a process that takes 1 minute to complete, i think the answer is easy, just thought i would share my results :)

    What effects would you be referring to on a silver bar that arent there already ?

    Honestly, if you are happy with it, that is all that matters. The only caveat I would add would be to give the silver items a good soapy cleaning and THOROUGH rinse to make sure you leave the least amount of "stuff" on there to cause future problems.

    Even without magnification, use a light source and tilt one of the items back and forth and see if you notice any lines.

    That is recommended that they are washed and yes always follow the manufactures
    Instructions of course :)

    I had a mint state 5 mark coin from 1878 which was heavily tarnished until I added sand to the jewelry cleaner. Came out blast white.




















    Well, if you believe that..... But the effect on value would probably be about the same for anything except spot-price bullion.
