Default Grey SLQ

Found a VERY toasted SLQ buried deep in black muck. Almost tossed it into the recycling bin but happily took a second and third look at it.

Would like to get a little luster back on it so it looks a bit more like silver. Any suggestions?

you can try mixing some boiling water, salt, and baking soda then wrap it all in aluminun foil for 10-15 minutes. Smells like rotten eggs but may clean it up some for ya. Never tried it on a coin that toasted though.

I think it's great that everyone has their own recipe to clean stuff. I plan on trying some of these on my future crusty silvers. Most of my silver coins are completely black because they come from salt water.

I usually make a paste with warm water and baking soda and gently rub it until the shine comes back. On the really dark coins you may have to do it twice.
