Steel wool will damage the coins. Not a big issue for spendables but definitely not a option for the older coins. I have used Gumtion on a nappy wipe for the older coins but as youve said, it gets old quick.

One day your life will flash before your eyes. Make it worth watching.

André's Pencils for the good ones.

Spendables, cheap eBay tumbler will get you sorted, can get stainless steel shot from China fairly cheap, I think a lot of people just use baking soda in the medium. I guess you need to weigh up how many coins you bring home from an outing. I pulled $58 from the park a few days ago, that pays for a cheapo tumbler I guess. … store-them
