I simply don't buy coins that need possible remediation.

For those who enjoy doing so I hope you practice on less valuable examples first.
Exactly how I feel.

I totally trust my LCS dealer to advise, and dip, for me. I have never been disappointed.

I wouldn't touch either. I'm confused about the first one. It's perfect as is...why touch it?

He's hoping to find ones that would get a grade bump after a dip

Is it okay to dip circulated coins? Have a few Morgans I bought for melt value, and want to dip to see what happens, but read elsewhere dipping should only be done on uncirculated coins.

It will leave them looking dull and lifeless. If the only value is melt, no harm experimenting. Once you see it for yourself you will understand.

with jbuck! You can experiment if it's just worth melt. Post some pictures here and we might be able to add more value/answers to your question.

I would only dip a choice uncirculated coin that had black oxide toning & tarnish for 3-4 seconds with an immediate rinse of distilled water .

I wouldn't touch a coin with black oxide toning. It's terminal and is much more likely to reveal damaged surfaces once the toning is removed.

Thank you for the advice. I will pick a few that are messed up and see what happens. I will try to remember to take before and after photos.
