    My hobby of restoring ground finds

    Howdy all, TheCoinDoctor here...

    Though I said coin, I love to restore anything from the ground. I have a whites and have done some detecting, but mainly find junk... still cool to me though.

    I thought folks might like to see some recent projects of mine? Does anyone else out there restore stuff?
    Enjoy
    Gary

    Many of us attempt to, with varying degrees of success. What method do you use on copper? Welcome to Tnet!

    If those pics are examples of the "junk" you're finding, then you have no problems!!

    those blockage pieces are amazing

    you should share your methods and maybe get some of us on board with how we can do this to some of our finds

    If you don't like that junk you are finding, send it to me.I restore many things, but usually on a larger scale.
