So would you call this a ruined coin ?
Been looking on line I'm worried it's a ruined piece.
Maybe a quick dip? I don't know much about what brand dip to use, somebodey here will help you out.
chemicals and abrasives used together. Then you will have a "matte" silver-colored cleaned coin (that will still fool 60% of collectors ) even if you know how to do it.
The coin is worth "silver" so you can give your coin to a dealer plus some extra cash and get a BU coin for your collection.
The dip I thought about, but then I think what kind of damage would occur but then if it's damaged, what the heck .
If you dip the coin w/o proper preparation you will have a DULL GRAY P.O.S. that no one would want. Even the will know something does not look right.
If you do the job "right" given the coin is already ruined, you will have a "white-looking" slider to a lightly-cleaned and more presentable coin. It all depends on your skill level.
Interesting is there a link I can read up on for "proper dipping" ?
Wouldn't buy it though.
There should be lots of info here on old threads. Might be something on You Tube. Otherwise you might start a new thread: How to dip a coin? I should like to read what others have to say.
Dipping a coin is fairly easy. The preparation is what separates the conservation specialist from the typical dealer/collector. I've tried to weasel stuff out over the years but most people have signed confidentiality agreements or will not reveal their tricks to just anyone.
Neither would I. It was a freebie. Still only worth melt. But it does look better.
Good idea give me a chance and I'll start a new one, I'm interested in how to handle pieces like these.
Wow, wow did you anger the gods, this
Wow, wow, did you anger the gods, it's basically environmental reaction but I'm not a well read coin/metals collector but I'm up and coming-lifetimelearning, but I've never seen it well, that deep; dark gray, wow
That is why it got I love that look.
