Henry VII half groat

Post by Oxgirl36 » Mon May 20, 2019 10:21 pm

Ok here’s my half groat from yesterday that I found on a new small patch of pasture right by the farmhouse. I’ve so far done a tiny area, it’s near the pond. This patch of land was part of the village pound according to 19th century maps :D

It’s a house of York one, Allectus thought last night using the appalling ‘before’ pics. After a zap of electrolysis and a gentle (cold) straightening it looks much better. See here for before ones viewtopic.php?f=122&t=111710

Hot with reactivity at 2.5 and on 17(ish) khz using v5.21 and the X35 11” coil.

After electrolysis...

What a transformation. ::g
Looks like the X35 coil and V5.2 is working for you are you a convert now? :D

Out of interest, what kit / method did you use for the electrolysis? I have a diy set up using an old phone charger, and I've never returned results as good as this.

I first soaked it in an olive oil and lemon mix warmed by putting a smaller dish (with the coin and the mix) inside a bigger bowl with boiling water. Left for an hour or two. Washed with soap and gave it a little brush. Then used an old phone charger with warm water and loads of salt. Got it out and used toothbrush after about 2 minutes. The water was filthy so changed it for fresh with more salt. Repeated. Washed it. Then a gentle rub over with tin foil. I wanted to keep some patina.

Last time i tried this I put the clips on according to the instructions supplied but it looks like the supplier has done them the wrong way round =))
