    Cleaning arc of Vernier sextant.
    From: George Huxtable

    I'm after some tips, please, on the best way of cleaning the silver
    arc on an old Vernier sextant. It's been left nicely alone and
    unpolished, with the result that the arc divisions are as good as new
    and quite unsullied. Same applies to the Vernier. I am anxious to keep
    it that way. So I want to know about gentle techniques for cleaning it
    up, without any need to get it bright.
    I have heard of the virtues of rubbing with breadcrumbs. I would like
    to hear about the experience of others.
