    Does Nic-a-Date live up to its claims? I will give a YES, NO, and a WORD of CAUTION answer. First, YES, the product does indeed restore the dates on worn buffalo nickles. I tried it on all 40 of the dateless "roll" of buffalos offered on this site. It did indeed reveal 37 dates out of the 40. However, you will need a magnifying glass to read the faint date on nearly every coin. Now for the NO: The product claims that after applying it to the nickel you will "see the date appear before your eyes", and "when the date becomes visible..." you are to wash the coin. The problem is that the fluid [ferric-chloride] is a brown color [like iodine] and gets darker as it works. So it is impossible to see anything happening until AFTER you have washed it! So you can't even know when to wash it in the first place! Actually, the amount of time will vary from coin to coin. Try a minute or two, wash, and if nothing shows up, repeat the process. Now for the WORDS of CAUTION (not stated by the manufacturer): Once you see a date, or even part of a date, STOP. If you repeat the application thinking that you will "enhance the date" you actually run the risk of totally obliterating any trace of the date that has shown up(remember, the product is an acid). Also, a number of web sites stated that the dates will eventually again fade with time. So, if you try to resore it again, you will begin the destructive process. Also, from the very first application, the product leaves a permanent blotchy, rough, acid spot of damage on the coin. That's the price you pay to see the date. That being said, it was fun to see what dates these coins were. In the roll I used, 24 were from every date in the teens, 11 were from nearly every date from the 20's, two from the 30's, and three never showed anything. So, with the above information, you will know what to expect when using "Nic-a-date" on your coins.
