someone else posted this once so I decided to try it, sepperate your clad dimes, nickles and quarters from the pennies put them in the tumbler with whatever material you are using, I use jewelers stainless steel shot, fill with white distilled vinegar to the top of the coins add a couple table spoons of ice cream salt and tumble for 1-2 hours and that's it! I finally tried it and this to me was much better than running the tumbler all night.
happy hunting all! ::usaflag::

I will give this a shot. I've got lots of clad.

I do much the same thing except that I use aquarium gravel.

Why waste time cleaning the clad. I just shake off the loose dirt and dump them thru my bank's coin machine. Problem solved.

The machine at my bank kicks out most of my coins if they are very dirty.
