    Take a closer look under the serial number, and you'll see what I mean. Perfectly fine for these bars I suppose, or other silver objects. Not for use on collectables. JMO.

    This bar was not perfect from the get go ! it does have some surface scratching
    and a ding on the side where it had been previously dropped BUT THIS WAS ALL PRE POLISH DAMAGE !!

    I'm just wondering what a Memeber is? o_O

    Oh I looked it up - I want to share this webpage with you -

    I probably would have little concern for bars that have a simple design. This product tends to dry quickly however and on more intricate designs, especially within the lettering and hair of busts, if this were to cake before you could rub it off, it would require you to rinse with distilled water and use another means other than a soft cloth to get it out of the nooks and crannies. Scratches might occur in this case depending upon what method is used. I'm thinking about some of the beautifully designed rounds I have purchased over the years in particular that I would never use this for. Better to dip for me. Just bullion again, but I would not want to take a chance just to have the blast white look come back. But that is just me and some experience from cleaning hundreds of silver plate items over many years. The cloth type I use is the same used for cleaning CD's & DVD's but a different solution of course. I have seen plenty of buff scratches on silver plate, it's inevitable with dirtier, more ingrained tarnish.

    Yeah, I live in the Northeast so tarnish is a regular occurrence on items displayed in showcases. This product worked well for me on a special piece I purchased years ago. A dealer did not want to do the tough work of getting the heavy tarnish off so I was able to purchase an extremely ornate coffee pot with bone handles and a stags head to top it off on the lid cheap. After getting the tarnish off the base I uncovered a total of six patent numbers. One for each part of the urn/pot. It was one of the first electrified coffee pots. I paid $25.00 for it and after several hours of polishing was able to get $450.00 for it on Ebay. To boot it was inscribed as an Elks Lodge piece. So this product does come in handy sometimes.

    Yeah, was going to use Tarnex but after reading the label decided against it, lot,s
    of bad stuff in it, the cream really isnt that gritty in comparison to allot i have seen
    Used allot of different products on my Crager Super Lights (aluminum wheels)
    Blue magic was a clear winner, this product has a similar make up.

    Can I ask a question without seeming like a jerk? Because I'm not a bullion guy, but I understand the idea of stacking, but if it's silver, why does it matter if it's toned (tarnished) or not? Cleaning the silver only removes a microscopic layer of metal and at the end of the day gives you less of what you want than what you started with. So why does it matter?

    No worries :) it really doesnt matter bullion is bullion however when you get in to Bullion plus + for instance an art bar , would you buy something that is all uglly
    and tarnished ? probably not and you certainly would not pay full price, the fact
    Of the matter you cant completely stop the process of Silver "going ugly on you"
    Regardless of how it,s stored, you can delay the process for sure but it will
    eventually bite you in the butt, for me i like looking at my silver all polished and
    glowing but it,s certainly not necessary, call it a personal preference :)

    Seems like I read an older post from @Insider where he was talking about attacking a field of an ASE with a cotton swab as hard as you want to press and not seeing any scratches even with magnification.

    :rolleyes: :wacky: Come on Mike. You :smuggrin: are correct, but it has nothing to do with the way the rest of us store our coins. ;)

    Don't recall that post but if you take a Mint State SE and a clean Q-tip and rub it across the surface dry w/o letting the stiff part of the tip touch the coin, you should not see hairlines.

    :hilarious::hilarious::hilarious::hilarious::shame: Yep! Just did it. Five times, back and forth. No image as nothing changed. Did it again (seven times back and forth) on the same spot. Still no hairlines. When I get one I'll do a Proof SE. I MAY be able to produce hairlines on the surface of one. If I do I'll post a photo and the number of times I moved the Q-tip back and forth under pressure.
