These are auction pictures and this is about the largest I could get them without being too blurry. Advertised as a greek silver coin approx 10 mm. Fish on one side and animal(s) on the other. The coin looks porous is this right? Thanks

I'm not familiar with where this coin might be from, but those streaks I'm seeing look more like crystallization rather than porosity.

My coin was $80 from a main dealer. Given the condition and lack of centering etc. you might get $20-30 for yours.
