coin tumbler

Post by Tinopener » Sun Oct 19, 2014 7:56 am

Hi every one after spending a hour trying to clean two coins can any one suggest a coin tumbler to buy.. nothing to costly and are they worth it..by the way the two coins were a George 111 farthing 1799 and a George 111 penny 1797 I think ? ::g

I certainly would never use a tumbler to clean old coins or artifacts. Only thing that goes in mine is beach clad coinage, but never pre-decimal..

National Geographic Rock Tumbler - not much more than a kid's toy but does the job a treat and you'll get one for under a tenner on Fleabay. Not used mine for a couple of years as I'm only just making a return to MD'ing but used to use it for cleaning up modern coinage to enable me to use it in machines, meters and the like ::g
