They look OK as they are!....
It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.
I'm Spartacus, not really i'm Paul!...
Cleaning kills the history of every single piece in my opinion. I would let them as they are.
Not a good idea. You will only ruin the value. Its like your saying you buy an ss dagger that has wear on the blade and you decide to polish it. It's never a good idea to obstruct antiques.
I agree - leave these alone, they are fine.
What were you told about them.........?
I will add to the consensus of opinion. Don't clean them!
LIFE'S LOSERS NEVER LEARN FROM THE ERROR OF THEIR WAYS.
