Default Coin Ring tinting

For you fellow coin ring makers, how do you get that nice black tint that helps make the details stand out? Here is a 1963 Washington quarter I'm working on.

Thanks

Sorry, not a ring maker, so I don't have an answer. But I gotta say, that is a fine looking ring! Good job!

Thanks Huckleberry. I'm slowly learning the art. Quarters are tuff. Halves and dollars are much easier.

Thanks, partyofone. That is what I needed.

Working on learning the Swedish Wrap while I wait for my Liver of Sulfer. Makes the ring fatter.

Looking good detector! I'll eventually drop the cash on some good coin ring tools. They can get pricey for sure, keep up the great work!

Try regular ol' bleach. That is what I use on my silver coin rings and I like it a lot. Change you can wear did a YouTube video of the comparison of different methods and bleach and Liver Sulfur did about the same.

Wonder if JAX Silver Darkener is just bleach without the bleach smell. I've used JAX and if=t works great. I've never heard that bleach does the same thing. Interesting.
