Yesterday my wife used silver polish to clean up all my Morgan dollars when I was out. When I back home I found all my morgans look like stainless steel no more dull silver look. they look like some fake coins!!!!!
Any way to make them recover to the original non-gloss silver look ?
Please Please help....many, many, many, thanks.

Here is a short path, take the coins and your pocket change and your wife's purse (ask her for an old one, dirty is okay ) and drop all in. Shake vigourously for about half an hour, then take the lot and put in a saucpan (not the purse, just the coins) and heat til VERY HOT and oxidized.

Then when cool, you should have normal looking coins again.

If you get tired shaking the purse (or attract unwanted public attention), run the purse (not yourself) in the dryer. Hope your wife is as tolerant as you were of her good intentions.

Yikes, I wouldn't put 'em in the stove... try cat urine in sawdust or Ketchup.

Go into her closet. Take all her clothes and bleach them until shiney white. Tell her you were just trying to help.

Pete, that oxidizes the coins? cool. I was suggesting some heat (saucepan) to do that job.

BTW it is way uncool to make comments about someone taking the trouble to clean up the coins.

Bleach...by dropping the coins in bleach for a "little" while (times may vary) they will turn black. Then take some sort of light abrasive and polish all the black from the coins. This will leave black in the cracks and give the coins a really nice contrast.

Hi Jonathan, I hope you didn't take what I wrote seriously - I don't advocate anyone messing with their wife's wardrobe!! That could be suicidal.

I once "accidentally" ruined a wash load of my wife's silk blouses, "trying to do a favor."

It happens Smile

Well, just wait until the wife figures out a way to oxidize the coins so they look normal.
then what are you going to do to the clothes?... Smile
hope no one here is brave enough to actually find out what happens. xD

Oh, but I don't have a dirty purse . I usually put all the coins inside my pocket. Can I use a plastic bag to shake it ?
