    Will you share your secrets, or is this proprietary? And what is the accretion?

    Probably not too much different depending on the strength of any one of them as they would be just mild acidic....

    Just wonder if the citric acid would have any chelating effect...

    Hi Kentacky..Yes, I cleaned the coins with lemon juice and citrus acid, but only when I was completely sure that the coin is of pure silver, because vinegar is less aggressive on metal..In this case, I thought this coin was silver plated..
