Part of Loyd's collection of stick pins. Loyd is wart of restoration. When he adds a piece to his collection, "I just dust it off, clean it up. Lots of times, you go to make something better, you end up making it worse. Lots of times, after I get a new piece home, I just let it set for one or two years," he said. "You've got to be careful not to rub off the finish. Don't use steel wool or anything abrasive. And be careful with what you put on an antique. These new chemicals can have unpredictable results on old things. Whatever you do, do it cautiously."
