Collectors say they collect artefacts to 'preserve' them. Here are some of the things they do:

Original surface zapped to death

 Some dealers are not at all embarrassed to sell such trashed material:

But there is no convincing some that conservation methods have advanced a little further than Plenderleith and Werner...
electrolysis strips nothing away from a coin or artifact it simply stabilizes the metal which is in a volatile state ... If you spent 1 minute on your research you would have easily figured that out .. [...] 30 years of research and study with a IVY LEAGE University 12 museums and 100 archaeo and salvage vessels using this technology say youre wrong ... [...]  some of the most well preserved artifacts in the world are in that state because of electrolysis ...a 5000 year old process developed by primitives who apparently have more of a grasp of the scientific method than you sir
Hmm. The comment of course was unsigned, but originates from Trump's America.
