Is there a way to restore the dates of worn SLQ's? I've got one that's slick as can be but under the right light looks like the upper loop of a 1919-D. Let me know here's a pic of OBV.

I'm not sure, but I heard that there's a trick, where you can raise the date on Buffalo nickels.

Like E&V said, you can restore nickel dates various ways. But, that is because of the composition of the metal. When you put nic-a-date on a nickel for example, it is actually an acid that eats away some of the metal. It will eat the parts of the coin that were struck lightly first, leaving the heavier struck parts(ie; the date). I don't think this is possible on silver coins because of silver doesn't react that way. I do wish it was however because it would make hole filling those hard to get dates much easier!

Trick I heard works on some if not worn down too much. Take soot outta your car tailpipe and rub on the area. It may sometimes do a vague outline if looked at angled right. It worked on one, BT that had a hint of upper numbers, most seem too worn. Then there's the Types of reverses.

There is a method people have used with a silver etchant similar to how people restore Buffalo nickel dates, but the chemicals you would need to use are very dangerous and the results are not very appealing to the eye

Hm... well dangerous chemicals don't sound the best course of action. I tried the rev/obv types but since the collar is worn you can't tell if OBV-02 or OBV-03. OBV-02 means that it would be a key date. I don't know about the soot idea, never tried it.

I wish we could too. I'll try the soot idea as it's the least dangerous.

Thanks Guys!

Should I rev the engine while I'm collecting the soot ?
Come on you guy's ; do you really need a hole filler that much ? the coin is gone , a cull and nothing but junk silver .
Don't take life too seriously and remember it is just a passing fad ......

Sometimes, polarized light may help to show up the date.
Also may apply to Buffalo nickels with worn date areas.

Nic-A-Date for nickels uses ferric chloride as the etchent, Silver can be etched with ferric nitrate. Haven't tried it though but that is what is listed on jewelry sites.

Seems you're asking for hints for doing some destructive methods that may or may not reveal results. I to might do the same as a last resort. Plenty of suggestions have been presented or already available with a few searches through the forums.

Curious if you've tried displaying images of the whole obverse and reverse that which others can evaluate? Some may or may not be able to put together or narrow down a nondestructive conclusion using design types or un-thought of markers? Thanks, Doug.

Thinking that narrows it down to 1917 - 1924. http://www.PCGScoinfacts.com/Hierar...+(1917-1924)
