I have asked this before, but no one has given me a definitive answer. Why can a bottle be "tumbled" to bring it back to a "like new" polish yet if you clean, polish or try to improve the look of a collectible coin that item becomes effectively worthless. Why is it bottle collectors don't seem to mind the "tumbling" process? Can you tell the difference between a "museum quality" original mint condition bottle and one that is also perfect, but it got that way due to being tumbled? I am planning on setting up a tumbler soon, but I would like to hear an opinion o this first. Thanks Karl
You'd have to ask a Coin Collector this Question. There are some people that consider a Tumbled Bottle worthless. I know some Bottle Collectors want nothing to do with a tumbled Bottle & won't add one to their Collection. Others like myself don't mind them. I don't think there is a definitive answer as it more depends on people opinions of what they like or don't like. LEON.
