Default Any tips on cleaning a tone coin? (picture inside)

The one on the right is tone and I want to clean it up.
You have any recommendation of what to use?

My last option would be this product:
eZest Coin Cleaner and Coin Dipping Solution

Someone told me not to try and clean coins as it affects their value

Don't clean coins collectors can tell and won't buy them. Cleaning coins devalues them.
Toning is a good thing on coins and often will bring a premium. Search ebay and you will see.

DONT clean it, unless you never want to sell it for anything but Spot(if lucky). That coin is barely toned at all.


Remember this isn't sports cards, that is the thing I notice with newer "silver collectors". Silver does not need to be in perfect Mint condition. I have silver bars from the 80's that were in a house fire, and they were black as could be. I listed them on ebay last year, and got around $5 less per bar, than the same bar brand new.

Toothpaste works well.

I love toning but a lot of people and dealers don't. They will dip the coins to remove it. It will remove the toning but also will remove some of the luster. A few years down the road there will be signs of a dipping. Most exp collectors will be able to tell this. However here is a link for you.

Leave it alone. You'll damage the surface.
