So in my collection lies a 1922 shilling, which I would determine as Exf +. Hard to tell because it looks like its been buried underground for 90 years! But through the dirt I see a high grade with very nice toning. I took it to my local coin dealer who suggests it would only be worth a few bucks in that state which I tend to agree. He told me to try my luck and put it in silver dip as nothing worse can happen, I also tend to agree with that. Although I am going to put it in Cloudy Ammonia instead.
I am sorry to those coin lovers I know I shouldn't be touching it but it can't get any worse.
I will post pics before it goes in and after it comes out :D
RESULTS: Not to happy, does look better but not as good as I expected. Does look better in hand then in photos, stoll toning on the obverse but seems to have done something to the toning on the reverse. Full centre diamond, can't really count the pearls. Still stuff covering the feathers on the emu so can't determine the feathers.
