Some silver coins I'm thinking about extracting pure silver from. If any of these are special dates that I should keep please tell me.

Thanks, it'll be awhile as I live in a town of less then 2,000 people and I'll have a hard time finding Nitric acid. @bulinwall

Wow, that was not an answer I was expecting! 😬 get r done Mr. Wizard!! 🤓😁

@bulinwall I have never done it but I am planing to use Nitric acid, a common acid that can dissolve silver and copper (the alloy that makes up the coins), and after I have a silver nitrate solution I will precipitate or drop the silver out by sticking a pice of cooper in the solution, the copper molecules replace the discover silver ones and solidify the silver into a gray powder, after I filter it and rinse it I will melt it down and weigh it.

@jackn how do u plan on getting the silver out?? Smelt it urself??
