Yes, to remove the loose crust. Forgot to mention that.
I've only ever used on copper, and I believe that's what it is intended for.
Instead of "clean" we could say... "remove unwanted material" Better ???
It is specifically designed for copper coins. One of our member chemists, @BadThad invented it. I've never used it myself, but I've heard good things about it.
C'mon try it, you'll like it
Haha, I have no opposition to trying it if I needed it. I'm perfectly in favor of properly conserving coins, and I believe judicious use of this chemical falls in that category.
I haven't tried it because I don't buy the sorts of coins that would need it.
Point well-taken, but the appearance of dull, lifeless coins can be enhanced along with the promise of future protection.
It was very dull pouris I treated it twice as the copper just sucked the product in....now still dull but it did improve the specimen 100 times better as some text now could be read....and the surface didn't seem as dry,or brittle.
A small bottle last a long time as very little product is required to get the effects wanted. @BadThad thanks buddy great product.
Just curious. If you sent it in for grading would they say cleaned?
Thad can speak for himself as to what he had in mind when he came up with the formula for this stuff. But, the simple fact is this - it's purpose is to remove verdigris. And it doesn't matter what kind of coin the verdigris is on. Verdigris is found on copper, silver, and gold coins, and sometimes even nickels, and Verdi-Care will remove verdigris from all of them.
Granted, verdigris is found on copper coins more often than silver or gold coins. But it's still pretty common on both silver and gold. Less so on nickels.
