Apart from the practical use of the information contained in this video, and also in the comments with the technical explanations by our very own member here Jamesey (thanks for that fella, i was never very good at chemistry, always made a smell :lol: )

But, the introduction by John is just funny, and worth a watch in the morning just to make ya smile :lol: even if you dont want to repatinate a coin :thumbsup:

Iv always used bleach, then highlight with foil, though might have a dabble with the rubber in the future

A pencil rubber works best, Mick. Hope it works well for you :thumbsup:

Interesting video :thumbsup:

Killed it for me though, looked better before you started .
Guess it’s a personal thing how you want your coins to look .

Well done on doing the video in the first place :thumbsup:

Exactly. It's a purely personal thing with no rights or wrongs - only opinions (monetary value aside) :thumbsup:
