PCGS Clean Coin Grading Video

This really doesn't need any comments by me. It is a short video that displays and discusses most kinds of cleaning that one would see on US coins.
I would add that attitudes about cleaning differ across the world substantially, but that is another discussion.

In a spoof on the advertisement that friends don't let other friends drive drunk, coin collectors don't let their collecting friends clean coins!

Why do you want to clean coins. That is the question.? Everyone thinks they can do it. You cant!

Cleaning coins improperly is not good. Acetone for PVC ? I have used acetone on a coin that had pvc on it.

Never clean coins.

The video says what most of it not all says. Don't clean your coins or try and find them. It will devalue your coins. They left out fingerprints. They stay and you can see them always were gloves. . Sam wait a distilled water for cents works . It may take a few days. Also know who your buying from! They might have cleaned 20 coins and sell them on ebay and other sites. Bottom line. No safe way to clean a coin leave it to the grading companiese.
