  1. I use acetone or Xylol (xylene) to remove PVC contamination and "biologicals" (finger oils, etc.) but I would not use anything else under any circumstances. I have seen where olive oil loosens crud which can then be removed manually, but I would be afraid of scratching the coin's surface.
  2. You have the most amazing collection of English hammered coinage I've ever seen, and the history lessons you provide are simply fascinating! Thanks so much for sharing all of these with us.
  3. Stunning is right! That's a beauty

  13. Those are nice, and I have the same question as Frank - what's on the obverse?
  14. Hus, that George V Halfpenny is stunning!!!
  15. Oooooh, you all know me. I LOVE toners! The next one was undoubtedly artificially toned ... ... that'll do for now
  16. My first impression of that is that it looks French. That's a beautiful piece!
  17. That is one of the most interesting pieces I've seen. I think it's just beautiful, and the historical significance really makes it unique. Looks like you have quite a way to go to fill it up, huh?
