Coin Cleaning - with a Laser?

#1 Unread post by bobber »

I happened to be watching this video Restored Tysytube’s Coffee Grinder - Laser Cleaning Restoration . Product page: cl500
And I thought, what would happen if someone tried to clean coins with this thing?
Thoughts?

You will ruin the coin. It will remove a layer of the coin, causing it to show a very visible removal of the top layer removing all luster. I wouldn't be surprised on a copper coat zinc cent; it would remove the copper plating.
