NOSE OIL HAS NUMISMATIC NAMES

Dick Johnson writes: "Two years ago in E-Sylum several
writers reported on the use of human nose oil in a number
of ways in our field: (1) lubricate a wax tool, (2) eliminated
scratches on a coinís surface, and (3) the same for slab
plastic. [E-Sylum vol 5, nos 7, 8 & 16.]

Surfing the Internet this week I found you can buy nose oil.
You donít have to keep rubbing your proboscis. Whatís
more, it comes in three colors Ė each with a numismatic
name for use on different coin compositions! Copper
penny. Silver. Black gold.

Since you are thinking I made this up, you must click
on the following URL Ė to prove I donít make this
stuff up!!:

Full Story

It is also used for rubbing a horseís rear end (okay, I made
that up). Did you click on? (If there are any horsemen among
our readers, how DO you use it?)"
