Cleaning Old Coins

Postby Max Metals » 02 April 2017

Every time someone mentions cleaning coins, the collectors all jump in with a panicked "never clean a coin!" What a crock. Most coins are not collectible coins, and what most of us want to know is the most efficient way to cleaning a load of common coins, not a few collectibles, without damaging them. Right now I'm in possession of about 100 pounds of quarters that I've saved over the years. I want to clean them so that I can start distributing them to the kids. All I want to know is the fastest, easiest way of cleaning them and shining them up for when I hand them over. Value is not an issue here... nor is it in almost every case when this question comes up.
