    Looking forward to the name of the chemical.

    Can you get her to outline her cleaning procedure? It would be a real interesting read from someone who works at a mint.

    Very nice. For a thin coin it held up very well.

    Another thing that has stayed clear of my coil, must be years since I found one.

    Can't find it if you're watching tv at home, your machine isn't on, and the head of your detector is pointed up!!
