I already have both of these, also I can't resist cleaning everything I'm going to clean as soon as I get home so I have nothing to enter!

Good luck to everyone that enters, those are really handy bits of kit. :)
Go forth and find more sir :Luv Ya:
chill…karma will fix it

Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking

I assume that it's for finds that need uncrusting, so the winner can uncrust their item with those shiney new pencils? :thumbsup:

No "after" shots required - just shot(s) of the item in its uncleaned state. Be nice if the winner posted up some pics of the cleaned find afterwards, though :thumbsup:

I think that my only crusty find that may reveal further detail with those scraper pens is this 1806 George III penny.
