Cleaning old pennies

Postby pauljt71 » Mon Jan 13, 2020 8:39 pm

I have found that when playing these old machines hands can get very dirty very quickly handling the old coins. I guess the same muck is also being transferred into the machine and coin slides.

I have found that by soaking the old pennies in cheap cola overnight followed by a quick rinse can transform old dirty coins into relatively shiny ones. 😀

Much better than sticking them into a home made grit tumbler, says I.

Your hands DID get dirty when you were playing the machines; it was all part of the experience.
Have a look at your hands after a good session in today's arcades, it's no different.

Stockwells Cola at Tesco Metro is only 17p for a 2 litre bottle. (Happy slurping!) :D

......... and if you mix it 3:1 with Toilet Duck it's really quite palatable.
