1. Head down to Bunnings for some TUFFMAN plastic buckets and thick gloves.

2. Chemical bath #1

3. Bath in some green stuff. That's gotta help.

4. Get out the high-pressure hose to clean off the chemicals

5. Blowdry

6. Brillo pad / pot scrubber. Use the rough side with nice long strokes.

7. Might as well buff it a bit too.

An easier way would be to just boil an egg. And just pack the coin in the York overnight


WTB 4 to 6 grams of pure gold. Don't care if it is coin, bar or granules. Near spot, suits anyone who has been tempted to open a certicard or just have some granules to make a ring

Yep, I've had some interesting results with that method. It's a fun thing to try if you have some misc silver lying around.

Can I eat the yolk afterwards?

I might do actually. I read about it but haven't done it.

I have this YPS skull and 1oz tombstone sitting in its little cardboard coffin for a couple of years and it is starting to show some very nice coppery toning:
