Please just promise us one thing- you'll carefully check all coins for key or semi-key dates/mintmarks before you scour them.

Oh, and try the glass scouring powder for silver, instead of the brass brush, trust me.
Again, if you read the article, I've pointed out that "If I can't retire off of them, I clean 'em!" Which can be loosely inferred that I'm looking up questionable coins. In fact, also in this post, I've noted that I've ordered most of the coins shown for the purposes of checking their signatures under my detector so I already know what they're worth because I paid for them.

I paid $5 once for a $200 coin... ive also paid 5 cents for a 600$ coin. I can say that some of the coins you cleaned are not cheap by any means.
