Uncleaned Coins Arrive !!
Got an envelope today with the six uncleaned coins that I ordered inside.
First impression, very positive. After some poking around on ebay looking at what was available (mostly corroded mystery discs), I decided to order from a dealer who was recommended to me by a friend.
I poured the coins out on the table and was amazed by what I saw. Detail! Nice outlines of Emperors and legends are easily seen. I don't foresee any frustration in this lot. "Premium Uncleans" is the way to go, stay away from ebay.
Doesn't hurt to have a premium source either. Kevin will treat you right.
Soaking now, I will keep you posted.
