Hi All,
Here is the problem:
Just bought 12 Reed & Barton Sterling napkin rings on E-Bay. Tarnish came off easily but what's left are some kind of foggy (film?) spots of irregular shapes.

Soda/salt "bath" did'n help. Hagerty foam didn't help either... Please see attachment.

Any help?

Thanks a lot!

Hello SSL,

If Hagerty didn't remove those spots, try something a bit harsher, like Wright's Silver Cream. If that doesn't help, please contact me as it could be very light etching which will have to be removed by machine polishing.

Best of luck!
As a silver restoration, conservation, and preservationist, I'm happy to answer any silver-related questions you can't find answers to in my Web site's Silver Care Guide at http://www.hermansilver.com/care.htm.
