JAX Silver Blackener
Are your silver coins too bright and shiney...and need just a bit more toning to bring them to glory?
I've read all sorts of odd ways to re-tone silver coins; from burying them in the ground to putting them in a paper bag for a year or two. That's all well and fine by me, but I certainly don't have that much time on my hands, and more than likely, you don't either.
Here's the quick and "never fails" method; purchase a 1 oz. vial of JAX Silver Blackener, dip a Q-tip into the solution, then daub it onto your coin's surface. Within seconds, the entire surface will turn black as pitch. Ouch! That sounds scary, but read on.
Immediately toothbrush the coin with soap under running water to halt the blackening process. Dry the coin, then place it onto a soft cotton towel. Using your finger tips, press down hard onto the coin and firmly brush it back and forth and in circular motions to remove the darkening agent from the coin's portraits and legends. Repeat on the other side.
You will now have a gorgeous black-toned coin with silver high-lights; easy as pie.
My example looks a bit odd, color-wise, due to the vagaries of my camera, but trust me, this solution works like a charm.
