Seller's Note/ Here's the deal, folks; many of you may be put off purchasing our, or anyone else's, uncleaned silver denarius as being too difficult, use of harsh acids or whatever. But it's really quite easy! All you need is Mint State Restoration solution, a Dremel Tool and a 240 Grit Cleaning Wheel.
Soak your uncleaned denarius in full-strength MSR for 24 hours. Remove and use the 240 grit wheel under running water. Examine the coin, then repeat the soaks for another two hours and brush again, if necessary. Click the 'Images" tab to see how this same issue was horribly encrusted and now is sweet. It ain't rocket science, amigos; if we can do it that easy, so can you!
