This may seem like a silly question but after 60 years of residing in a drawer I have decided to mount my Grandad's WW1 medals in a frame and I wonder if I should clean them first? They have obviously been cleaned in the past but not since my Grandad died in 1946! Would appreciate other opinions.

I agree with Oxford Yeoman. The patina reflects their age.

I am sure you will have many different suggestions.

Thank you, you have made a decision for me!

I agree with Oxford Yeoman & Squirrel; not only about the patina but also for me it would be the fact that your Grandad was the last to clean them, so that's another connection to him.
