    What do you us/mixture?
    I picked these up today at one of my super secret locations and the top 1.55 cleaned up pretty nice in just a minute or so, Below that, Not so much, I let these soak for about 20 minutes in a water/lemon juice/salt mixture.
    Nothing fancy with these coins, I've not located any real silver...yet
    I'm thinking of the old RCBS tumbler next, Thoughts?

    Ugly coins 001 (1024x683). Ugly coins 002 (1024x683).

    Not sure what you have but never clean silver coins. If you happen to have some rare silver coin of numismatic value, you will cut the value in half by cleaning it.
