Holy cow... 3 days? Isn't it supposed to be like, 15 minutes? Even then the cleaned product looks artificially bright.

 

Any chemists out there that can tell me what the heck eats copper like that?

Thanks for the timely lesson RD.

The famous cola drink did about the same thing when I tried it on zinc coins that already had some surface cracks or breaks.

What a lesson there was in that!

 

So far I haven't come up with a way to clean the gunk off pennies except for the boiling water and baking soda regimen.

Problem with that is the pennies will come out toned and/or darkened. However, some of the coins would revert back to the original color if rubbed between the thumb and forefinger. Not all of them because that method might make the shine. Curious thing, these 'chemicals' we have in our bodies.

Okay, admit it, you aren't RD, you're the 'Mad Scientist', right? ;)

 

Do you have a lot of Lincolns? Are there any Lincolns you need (other than the famous vdb '09 or dbl 55's, which I do not have yet). Let me know and I will see what I can do to help.

 

Is it legal to send a coin or two to your country from outside... is it legal for you to send a coin or two from your country to the U.S.?
