:welcome:

... I think what you may be seeing are what's called "circulation contact marks"...?

:confused:
if you spin the coin while looking at this area do these "letters" fade in and out?

You're doing fine although it is better to post one coin at a time with detailed title and description of what you're seeing so others know it is a help topic. All these coins you posted are common coins and the toning is environmental damage type from the coins being in the ground in the past or in a cup holder with liquid.

Welcome to the forum.
Thanks for posting and you are doing fine but like Daniel said it is best to post one coin per thread (or topic). That way responses don't get confused as to which coin is being referred to.
And Daniel knows his "stuff" so I agree with him.
