"More shiny" can be good on Mint State coins but not on circulated pieces. Polishing or any other form of moving metal is not good. Moving metal is something that can be done easily, but is virtually impossible to undo. Many beginning collectors think that "shiny" is good, but on circulated coins they sometimes learn hard way that it it isn't. It destroys some or all of the numismatic value that a coin might have.


Look at it this way. If you can do something to a coin quite easily, chances are it's not going to increase the value or your abilty to sell it because someone else would have probably done it already.
