    I just received from America a nice fiberglass pencil for cleaning bronzes. I brought 4 in fact as it was cheeper that way.
    Not bad at all, I like it. Works great on bronze coins under a magnifier to lift and reveal detail, but it will scratch silver so be careful.

    Just thinking, I personally leave any coin alone that is valuable or think that I could ruin by the silver foil trick and messing around with them. But there are a few silvers and coppers that I just want to try my hand at cleaning them up. What are you all doing with your coins or artifacts to clean them.
    I know Such Much has some wonder full chemicals that he uses on bronzes to treat bronze disease.
    I've tried the olive oil soaking coins trick, but left it to long,...10 months:Blush: it started removing the green patinia.

    Any others out there cleaning?
