Dear Alexei

When I buy from dealer I like the medals to be as "original" as possible.

One point that I did not make is that there is a big difference between polishing and cleaning. If the awards are polished then they will lose value. I will only clean an item- not polish it.

I am traveling this weekend to the Far east again and will be visiting a coin dealer in the Philipines. He is an expert at repairing silver coins and medals. He is so good that you will never know the item has been repaired. He also tones them again and basically when you buy from him you know the item is tampered with.

When I sell my collection to you one day I will ask him to tone them for you..... just joking.

regards

Munroe
