I seperated the old pound coins, coppers and silvered coloured coins into seperate batches, but forgot to take the 10p's out of the copper batch so now they are all copper coloured! Is it easy to rectify that? I'm really not fussed about it though.
I tumbled about 55 old pound coins for about 20 mins just to make them more presentable at the bank.
I tumbled the coppers for maybe an hour then just let them soak with some added lemon juice for a while. The lemon juice was very effective and a further short tumble removed the black coating to leave them clean and quite shiny.
The steel shot supplied with the tumbler is probably not stainless steel as it sticks to a magnet reasonably well, maybe that is why it went coppery? :Thinking:
Good things come to those who wait.

I did not think much to the 3mm steel shot, which rusted, that came with the tumbler. So I bought 1kg of mixed stainless steel media and it works great. :thumbsup:
