1965 Venezuela 1 Bolivar Peso1064 viewsBefore and after images of this coin. Before restoration this coin was handled unprotected by collectors and the like, Much of the early tarnish was rubbed off the way it happend(ed) with circulating silver coins. Previous to the collectors handling, it was a well tarnished coin, but only the most minor damage had been done. THis coin looks beautiful once again.

1950 Mexico 5 Peso703 viewsThis is an example of a lightly tarnished coin, this coin will look wonderful with only minor work. Looking forward to seeing it after the process... it is a very beautiful coin. I wonder if they made on in 1958? :-) nah, it is a commerative coin. These Mexican 5 Peso coins are large and very lovely and contain a good chunk of Silver in them!
