    so I found this coin pictured and was wondering what I should use to clean it up

    acetone, silver polish and a rag to polish it up or some tarn-x?

    any opinions would be helpful

    Some 60 grade sandpaper will work:desk: Why would you want to clean a nice tone coin like that? I would leave it just the way it is.

    Its already in a slab, best to buy as is and enjoy.

    Nah, a grinding wheel would remove everything.


    It is slabbed, why buy it if you didn't like it?

    I agree very nicrly toned and graded, I say don't do anything to it.

    If you have a torch that can produce a flame with a high enough temperature you can remove not only the tarnish, but that annoying design.

    That way you can have a nice blob of bright silver metal.

    nah I like the metal of the coin I just want to clean off that disgusting rust crap off it :D

    thanks for all the ideas people :D

    btw I was thinking of buying up a certain key date morgan year/mint like maybe 1000+ and melting all of them but 1 down so the 1 I have "might" go up in value like $5 :D it's a sound idea to me what you guys think?

    Why melt them. just stash them when they go up $5 you can trickle them back out and make $5 1000 times instead of once ;)

    My first thought was that this was AT'ed so why not dip it.
    But then I noticed the NGC slab on second glance and I was like NO WAY.

    ....but it still looks AT'ed to me.
