I doubt whether I'll ever try it on any rare or even just 'collectable' coins. I've noticed that any collectable (ie non-bullion) coin in an auction catalogue that's described as 'cleaned' or 'polished' will invariably be regarded as less desirable and valued accordingly.

I've bought quite a few 18th and 19th century silver coins by post from dealers, which look to have been cleaned. In retrospect, I wish I hadn't bought them. I rarely buy coins at all these days, only at auctions where I can inspect them personally before bidding on them.

This is pretty cool. 2019 is the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing, and the US mint is issuing a series of commemoratives with a lunar footprint. :D

Unfortunately, when I try to do that I get an error that says: "Cannot complete delivery. Maximum message size exceeded."
