    You have the opposite soil than we do in this region. Your coppers look amazing, but your silver coins are often coated. By us the silvers look great, but the coppers are generally shot.

    I love that strike on the NJ copper. Glad to hear you are feeling better.

    I would vote "banner" but I don't wanna hafta see another one up there until I get mine!

    Nice work on the cleaning. Who says you can't clean rare coppers Even though it ain't no stinkin' 5000 dollar gold coin or ring, it should be on the banner just because its so damn nice. I vote banner.

I soaked in warm distilled water for about an hour after the peroxide bath and than dried thoroughly under a desk lamp.
