This blue portion below is specifically for the Blunt Point pin in this listing. The paragraph below it applies to all of the diamond pins that we sell in our store. This Safe Point pin is a blunt point pin that is coated with the same super fine grit diamond that our original pin is coated with (which we've sold hundreds of and which every single buyer has been very pleased by). The yellow band on the collar always means super fine grit, the finest that can be obtained. What makes this pin different is that it can be used with less skilled hands because the point is duller than the original. In addition to this, since the diamond coating extends down the shaft of the pin further and because it is wider, one can use this parallel to the surface of the coin to clean the fields with a great degree of efficiency. As long as the pin is close to parallel with the surface of the coin, one can use this to fleck and push the dirt very hard if needed. If one attempts this maneuver, one must be very careful not to let the pin slip and scratch the coin. The point on this pin is still quite sharp, so one should NEVER use them pointed directly at the coin (think how one would hold a pen to a piece of paper, that's the WRONG way to use these).

If you clean ancient coins as a hobby (or even professionally), then you've found the perfect tool! These pins are perfect for removing the dirt and grime from your coin. If used properly, one can remove the dirt from the fields as well as the devices of the coin without doing any significant damage to the patina! How is this possible? The reason why this tool is so safe is because the grit of diamond on this tool is so fine that any scratches done by the diamond are so small that it would take an incredibly high powered microscope to see them. Using the tool horizontally (parallel) with the surface of the coin and using small circular motions, you can remove expediently the dirt from the coins fields. Using the fine point at the end, one can quickly and fully remove the dirt from the lettering and details of the coin. While it may take a few rounds, eventually all of the dirt will be removed from the coin. It is recommended highly that one use a hands free magnification (such as a jewelers loupe) as well as a bright light to see clearly what they are doing. While this pin is great for everyone from the first timers to the most well seasoned pro, it is recommended that you experiment on uglier and worthless coins before tackling the more beautiful specimens (this is true of any cleaning method). This pin is intended for use on bronze and brass coins only. It CAN be used on silver and silvered coins, but it will scratch the silver, so it should only be used to fleck debris away rather than as surface cleaner. It is also not recommended to use on hard encrustations as it will reduce the effectiveness of the pin much quicker. I make no guarantees as to the results you will have on your coins.


This listing is for the pin only. These pins measure 22mm long and 1.6mm wide (at the shaft, the point is 1.8mm down to .5mm in width at the point). It cannot be used functionally by the unaided human hand. One will need to either have or obtain a pin vice to insert the pin into, which will serve as the tool with which to hold while using the pin.


These pins are sold as-is with the only warranty being that the pin will be as pictured and will be of high quality. They are manufactured to the HIGHEST degree of quality. With that being said, through normal use, eventually the diamond coating will wear out and the pin will need to be replaced (and you can obtain them here). Giving you an estimate as to the lifespan of the pins is not possible due to varying frequency and intensity of use, but you can expect to clean many coins without needing to replace it. Even after the diamond coating is gone, the pin can be used to flick away dirt and clean devices, though with much reduced effectiveness. It is normal for the tip of the pin to wear out first, while the diamond further down the shaft will remain intact. One can use the diamond on the shaft to grind the dirt on the edge of the coin after the tip has been used, but the tip will lose much of its effectiveness and you'll need to obtain a replacement.
