Thanks abeck. I think this may be similar the product I remember though mine was sold as a gold-blackener. But the acid and method of application looks right. I'll check it out.

I don't remember a nail, but it was a while ago. You might not use it from one years end to the next, but having it on the shelf is very useful.
