    Vinegar and peroxide is my preferred method. A few years back I was really into it.

    If you didn't use acid, or Ferric Chloride (Nic - A - Date, or PC board etchant) what did you use?

    No peroxide or a dab. Don’t like the bubbles. Your killing the coins collecting value. Bubbles and I think the Indian is suffering. I don’t need that. @hotwheelsearl yes your right
