    $100 face in halfs at 18 x face. same guy i got the dimes and quarters from at 17 x face last month. $2.13 over todays melt per $1 face but halfs seem to command a bit more than the dimes and quarters and he is dumping his lower end stuff first. i got my eye on the peace dollars and ASE's next. if/when it is time for him to sell away from AG to buy more AU before the inevitable upward price movement. I am gambling that silver will go back up again instead of dropping down to $15/ozt. spot.

    $158.09 shipped. $20 face 67-68 Canadian ten and 25 cent coins. Considering doing a specific gravity on the mackerels and bobcats.


    What do you guys think? Under melt either way.

    Just averaged down with another 150 contracts...NOW 550 contracts @ (average of .464) $25,500 invested...getting scary. (I have been known to hate myself on occasion)

    Cool

    Do you guys of you and gals clean your non-numi coins? I clean all mine with Tarn-x. I'm kind of a cleanness freak and I like shiny. But, I'm just a fussy old man.

    Last month I bought $300 face at 17xface and much of it was dirty dimes and quarters.
    YES. I cleaned it in boiling water with vinegar and baking soda and a little dish detergent.
    No scrubbing involved but any of the nastiness coating was removed.

    The $100 face halfs I got today at 18xface look much cleaner and I do not think I need to clean them. These were actually some of what I sold to a friend about 6 years ago at 13xface so he was happy and so am I.

    I cleaned a 1928 sucre with dish soap and water no scrubbing. It had copper corrosion on it. Currently soaking a 1925 Netherlands 25 cent, and an Angola 10 and 20 escudos in the same vat.

    The other three coins are not coming clean so well.

    Any suggestions?

    I have been somewhat successful using some crumpled aluminum foil as an attractant of the oxidation, corrosion, etc on silver coins where there seems to be a form of a transfer of the unwanted from the coin onto the aluminum foil. place it in a solution of vinegar and baking soda. i have also read where a little salt added would help and possibly low boiling to enhance the process.

    i will be cleaning some of the 90% i got yesterday this way today.

    Yup and I've tried them all. Years of using Tarn-x has worked the best for me. Cleans and restores silver to shinny!

    I'd rather not destroy the surfaces if possible.
