Yep...I didnt see any change from hot to cold...With the LJ...If it was a rare coin i wouldnt clean it anyway...But all the silvers that i have found so far get electricuted...And that seems to clean the toughest grime off in a minute or two....Other coins...copper ect...get dipped in Vaseline for 3 days...Then scraped clean with tooth picks and brushed with a tooth brush...Rinse and repeat..untill desired finish...Then wiped with vaso ...then pat dry..and admire thumbsup lol lol

Smoky, is there a thread explaining how to 'set up' the electrolysis process?
Maybe a DIY ?
or could you PM me some info and pics?

Maybe a link to a YouTube.

I would like to set up for Kato and do have the skills to do it, just need to know what works,
I'm not trying to be lazy and I am researching.
I just believe in 'if it works,' do that.


Still looking for Captain Feather-swords treasure chest !

The 50's came up nice but the 925 look like there struggling yikes sort of getting there have you tried finger rubbing them?

Yep, gave em a good thumb rubbing at their photo shoots each time, so the 1926 got a lot more than the 1908, but the idea there was to see the difference between the three day soak in CAB first before 12-24 hrs in LJ ,... as opposed to LJ all the way through with regular thumb rubbing.
I recon the 1908 would still have needed an additional 3 days worth of LJ and thumb rubbing to end up like the 1926 myself ,.... I see the 50%ers responded well both ways, and the one in CAB would have responded favourably even if it had been removed earlier, just by seeing the halo (liquid colour change) develop. big_smile

I wonder if anyone has tried warming the solution to accelerate the action of the acids being used ?

You guys do a great job on cleaning the coins with care, so far I have clean a few low value but no silver yet,
maybe I think I will be too brutal on them at this point.
Need to learn more and have some damaged ones to trial I think. (did they have lawn mowers in 1930's-40's?)

I ain't run a hot batch Gh ,.... n motorised mowers started in 1921

That is so cool, well that is now my personal challenge - to find a lawn mowered silver from 1921 or onwards.

WooHoo!

Let me send you some of my CA first, and you may consider sending Kato a coin if you wish to, she would 'fall over' with that. wink

Thanks for the Industrial Food Grade CA Gh, arrived very recently, and there's a coin in the mail for Kato, travelling your way as we speak. thumbsup big_smile
might have to dig deep for some black thrippies to try with the ICA (INDUSTRIAL CITRIC ACID) you sent me.

Feeling a bit excited!
I think I have found a Florin?
I can barely make anything out on it so I need to do a clean up!

Ps the twenty cents is a size reference as I thought it was twenty cents till I showed Sharlene and she asked me if that’s a florin!

Very happy with this!
After getting impatient I gave it a little scrub, looks like 1947, definitely a florin!
Just watching it soak now.
Thanks Smoky.
