Hi there everyone,

I would like some advice on the grades for these two coins, the first is a 1959m penny and the second 1920 no dots penny.

I also am unsure why the 1920 looks like it has fine sand all over it, it doesn't appear that way at all to the eye. If anyone has any suggestions on how to remove that, I'm all ears

Thank you very much

The 1959 penny looks Uncirculated.
The 1920 penny is almost VF.

The 1920 has some light verdigris which is fairly normal.
Soak it in WD40 for 15 minutes or so and then wipe off the residue with a soft cloth.

1920 Penny shows evidence of a die crack through the date numerals.
Sandy texture shows evidence of tiny corrosion pits, coin is genuine.
