    How about drag and drop your photos into your thread? If I can do that, at 76, you can learn. While doing so lets have a photo of the whole coin front and back. It appears that there may be a grease filled die and damage as well. But, I'd like to see the whole enchalida.

    I certainly hope you mean "very old coins from the early nineties" the 1890's and NOT the 199's or a lot of folks here are gonna get PO'd-- like me. Since I consider the 1990's recent history.

    @nooraden1 ... You said "Do you have an idea to clean the coins from the fat?" I am not sure what you mean.... A grease filled die means that the grease prevented the letters/numbers/image from appearing on the coin during the strike.... The grease (fat?) was in the die, not on the coin. Cheers, RickO

    There are many threads on the forum already that discuss various cleaning methods.

    Quickest way to ruin a coin and lose value is to clean or mess with it. Just leave them as you find them. NEVER clean a coin is the best advice I can give you.
    Collectors do not like messed with coins, they want originality with dirt and all.

    Save your energy, even if those are uncirculated, it’s not worth much.

    When leter are missing/lightly struck then Grease filled die. When letters get thin that is from overpolishing the die. Combine the 2 then you get missing letters with thin pieces parts of the struck letters apperaring here and there.
