1973 Cook Islsnd 5 Dollar441 viewsHere is an example of a Medium tarnished coin. there are scratches on the OBV that are beyond restoration without very serious damage to the coin, IOW, the scratches cannot be removed with normal procedures. Soldering? maybe... not me, not recommended, buy a new one :-) Look like this may be a Proof coin?

1944 Netherlands 25 cent444 views1944 Netherlands 25 cent. BU Before and after. This coin got its discoloration/tarnish perhaps not from industrial or vehicular pollutants, but more possibly from living in the hom of a heavy smoker. only a guess based on the yellowish/brown color before restoration.

Coin Restoration Part 1493 viewsThis is a sort of step by step picture show of a coin undergoing restoration. it also shows some of the prolems of trying to get mint luster to be visible in typical lighting often used to show detail in coins. Too much light causes some shiny surfaces to wash out to pure white. There are was around it, but typicall not done when the main thing happening to the coin is the restoration process.

1950 Mexico 5 Peso396 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!Jul 08, 2011
