    Have you heard of this preservation wax before?

    Hey Diggers,
    I've been reading some good reviews about this preservation wax. They sell it here in Germany for about $8 so I ordered one. I haven't used it yet but will this weekend on my next finds. I'll post the results to this thread.

    I use Renaissance Wax. It is used by The British Museum for relic preservation. I don't use it on silver. All of my bronze and copper coins, relics, and brass buttons are treated with it. It's probably a very similar product to the above.

    Donnie, I also use Renaissance wax but I'm almost halfway through the little container! I compared the two waxes and this new stuff is a lot stiffer and doesn't melt as easy with heat from my fingers. It takes more work to get it onto the item.

    My wife yells at me to keep the window open when using it.
