I got my silver wet. Should I be worried about damage?

    I took it into the bubble bath with me tonight to play with and admire. Should I be concerned about damage?

    No, it should be fine. It's not as if you left it wet. Just make sure it's rinsed well and dry. The only potential issue is if some ingredient of the bubble bath caused unsightly toning over time (which is unlikely).

    I've found silver coins with my detector that came out of the ground in decent shape. If after 75, 100, 200 or more years in the dirt and the elements hasn't messed 'em up, then a few minutes in a bubble bath shouldn't.



    We won't discuss how it's a little teeny bit weird to take a bubble bath with your coins. They're your coins, after all, and how you choose have fun with 'em is your business. ;)

    Besides, I've heard a lot worse. Coins as bath toys? Eh, sure, why not. Just make sure you've got the drain plug in!

    Unless that's the point-- another feeble attempt to disparage stackers and silver.

    I'm sure he used Distilled Water with the bubbles, and not faucet water ...

    Why bother? The behavior of stackers already disparages themselves. Anything else is "unnecessary roughness"?

    Sort of obnoxious on one hand. Kinda funny on the other. I call it a draw.

    Too late. I totally did.

    Hi, Hook. Meet Line and Sinker.

    I suppose I have become desensitized to absurdity after x-number of newb "error coin" posts. (PMD, PMD, PMD, ad nauseam.)

    No, but you should be concerned about your mental condition..........Bubble Bath at your age? Rubber Ducky too?
