Rod Fleck amateur! ;-)
I received these 15 coins @ $1.25 each from Lee Johnson, oldcoinman on Ebay [Contact him directly for off auction prices firstname.lastname@example.org] and figured that I would try an experiment on cleaning them this is a work in progress so lets see what happens along the way.
The group seems to be really nice you can see a set of details in the group picture. I divided them into three sets each has a true crusty init and each has at least one coin that shows a level of detail at the start. Also tried to have each group have a larger coin as well.
Group 1 with the quarter has a great Byzantine cup coin and it really is nice as it is but it will be cleaned to some degree in this experiment. Here is Group 1 with both sides shown.
There is a close up of the cup coin at the bottom of the page.
Group 2 nickel group has a great large Roman with detail noted below. All need to be cleaned in this group.
Group 3 dime group are the tiny ones that my daughter of seven loves. The one with the cross has a picture below showing more detail.
Now here are the three detailed pictures
So, now as to the experiment.
