    Maybe the seller opened it, did you buy from a dealer or private?

    Any close up of the coins?

    Looks like iron oxide, usually occurs in ferrous objects....

    Yup, a closer pic would be useful... doesn't look like the normal sort of toning which most often happens along the edges of the coin (and doesn't really detract from the price).

    Yeah, I think that does happen to silver on ocassion. Not sure why. But I have some Brittanias where this happened. I've been told it can come off with NCS, but who wants to spend a fortune getting them removed? NCS cost as much as the coin. Unfortunately. Conservation by they way (NCS).
