Should we clean aged Silver coins before the evaluation?
My grandfather collected silver coins and we just found today. (He was not a collector "so these were kept in a drawstring bag in a metal box in the rafters of his garage) are Morgan, dollars Peace through dollars (about Kennedy), quarters and dimes, pennies. Dates range 1880-1976. Obviously, these are not in perfect condition but I would clean a classification think superior. My question is how clean as best as possible before an assessment or leave them as we find them?
As with antiques, no taps. … The best advice we can give most people about cleaning coins is … no! We see a lot more coins ruined by cleaning than see coins that have been improved with the cleanup. In general, the currencies of speech can not be improved by cleaning them. "Source: http://www.24carat.co.uk/cleaningcoinsframe.html
