It even includes a brass brush!

I admit curiosity as to what those powders are.

Why waste my money on that when the belt sander in my garage will do just fine.

Cleaning is almost always essential for coins that have been recovered from direct soil contact ground burial.

My favorite coin cleaner is 7.62x51. Strips all the dirt off the coin. Actually, it just gets rid of the coin. Problem solved!

@sel, despite my shock to see this for sale, especially the brass wire brush, the results, if you can believe them, do not look that bad. So I am wondering what is really in this kit. After all, TPG do conserve coins, and I am sure that they use liquids of some sort that might well have started off as powders. I am certain that they don't use tooth brushes or wire brushes.

I had the same thought.
As for brushes, toothbrushes are usually nylon, which cannot scratch metal in and of itself.
Wire brushes? Yeah ... let's not go there.

Perhaps not wire brushes, but old toothbrushes 'n water are often used to clean coins recovered from ground burial.

I agree, why don't you go take a dip.

But if there is dirt or grit there the toothbrush can drag it around and it can cause scratches.

the "salts" they show look a lot like copper salts. guessing that after turning everything as bright as the sun with the brass brush that they help re-patina?
