    Default Pre WWII Tinnies, Pins, other

    Here are a bunch of pins and what nots I received from an elderly cousin. Any suggestions on how to clean / preserve these? It was in her attic in Lippe for God only knows how long. She is getting up in years and she is starting to clean out the attics. She was born in this house and she is 85 years old. Sorry for the quality of some of the pics but I am still in Germany and this is the best I could get. Thanks in advance. Also see my other posts of some of the other things I was fortunate to receive. See my Album on my Profile. Regards.

    Cleaning removes original patina, these items look this way because of age its best left alone

    I agree with Dave, leave the items as is. I would, however, put some mineral oil on the rusted area, but apart from that nothing else.
