what I use to dip coins, it works pretty well its a diluted ammonia mixture. works very well with cloudiness on proofs and can remove light toning. its not super strong.

That's not dipping, that's damaging.
Coin dips are thiourea based products available online or at dealers.
When we speak of "dipping" coins we are talking about the use of these products, I believe one brand name is EZ est.

It does the exact same and can't be detected. But technically yes it is damaging, but I don't do it on expensive pieces and I understand the consequences.

Yes I was referring to something like e*Z*est. It works pretty well but practice on cheap coins. Lol.

I know for a fact most people would disagree with me for this, but if I can find a solvent which can remove surface containment like clouding, and it's undetectable and will still grade by tpgs I'll use it, and I'm in Canada and no places sell ez zes. Also I know not to use it on rarer coins and only on Ms and proofs.

Sudsy ammonia works incredibly well on cloudy
Proof , Prooflike coins and DOES NOT DAMAGE
In any way . Just do not rub the coin !
Stay away from coin dip products .
Seen more coins damaged by over dipping in
Ez est or Jewel Lustre than you can imagine!
Coin dips are awful goo !

When I first read this post, I immediately thought it needed to be dipped because it looked like ____, and even if it were a 65 it should only fetch bullion value. I started to write out what to do but then realized how many here were going to jump all over me for suggesting it. Well, since YOU asked, yes, definitely dip it, please, it's horrid.

Earle .... Just for your info, I used to announce for two Great Lakes golf tour events that used to be held at our club. And one of the first times greeting golfers on the first tee to announce where they were from, I said "How y'all doing, eh?" My friends at the club teased me for years renewing the episode again and again over beers with other friends.

LOL! I grew up with a few Pittsburgh "ynzers," which has it's own flavor of accent on other words as well.

@Pacificoin: Good info thanks for this

@2rtgah678
I may as well ask - have you tried acetone yet? Xylene?

And if you can get E-Z-Est or MS70, I also have heard of people diluting them so it's not so easy to mess up the coin.

If you do decide to do something, please share your "after" pics as well.

Personally I figure if it cannot be told anything was done to a coin to restore it, then I go for it.

I'm of the same mind. I'll never dip anything that I find attractive but if it's fugly then why not? There's a process to using any of those dips and it's well worth googling it to find it out. If you don't do it properly you end up with cloudiness or spots. If you do it right though it can take a mediocre or ugly coin and really make it stand out. Especially with cameo.

Aight dipped the coin acouple days ago just havent had the time to reply, as I said the dip I use is weak but I still think is improved the coin! It remove some of the lighter toning and really exposed the luster! Now I'm trying to figure out if it had a soft strike or its AU but it looks too nice to be AU so idk!

I know it was mentioned earlier in the thread, but did you try acetone first and then xylene?

Our member, BadThad, who invented Verdi-Care has posted before suggesting acetone by the first thing used. If that does not give desired results, then use xylene.

After that, and if not a penny, I use a dip if I think it will help.




Try one and if the results are not good, then the other.
