Cleaning Old Silver Bullion: Part 1 – Grease and grime

My recent Engelhard silver bar needs a little TLC. This simple potion uses warm water and industrial ammonia, a known degreasing agent, to clean off the build up of 35 years of gunk ahead of my plans for removing the unsighlty toning spots. Enjoy!

  1. Nice video. I definitely like to keep a mirror finish on my new bars that are more massed produced and just look better with a mirror finish (like the Brittannia Bars) but I leave my older Englehard and J&M bars alone. They actually look better kinda scruffy but I guess it’s all about preference.
