Tom and I were discussing polished coins today and it reminded me of this video I came across recently.
Would you want that coin? The poster mentions numerous times that this should not be tried on valuable coins, but what would you think if you saw a silver dollar shined up like that? Are there any circumstances this would be permissible?
To be honest, I found myself visibly cringing as I watched that poor Kennedy being abused. Should coins ever be cleaned? I would love to see some sort of exhibit on cleaned coins on display at our coin show in May.
