Those are reprocessed coins ( replated after minting ) . Probably kept in a bad environment .

Nothing can be done.
The reprocessing alone takes away any value they may have had.

Looks like the coins have been replated over a rusty surface.

They look shiny, but for value they have been reduced to 3 or 4 cents. The spots on them are where they weren't cleaned very good before thy were replated.

If it's not too late, would like to see a photo or two with less (much less) glare. Might tweak our assessment--just my opinion. Thanks.

Agree, this is rust bleeding through the re-plating.
