Save the Sparklers this year! A science project.
Recently inspired by these two beauties in CoinFacts that are quite honestly beat up yet still made 67+ each.
Now, I'm not trying in anyway to say that these two coins were artificially toned. After all they straight graded with PCGS.
In my opinion, my MS67 (below) is superior to these two yet lacks color and as many hits. But I won't be cracking it out anytime soon. At least not until my science project comes back with positive results.
So, you hear tell about toned coins that sat in tissue paper or albums containing sulfur so, when I saw that leftover sparkler in the garage I thought to myself "Self, what could possibly go wrong".
Here are the tools needed for the project excluding time. And I'm starting with one under graded coin imo.
I put this together over Thanksgiving weekend and it has been sitting in the window. I'm thinking by July 4th it will be ready if it doesn't ignite first.
