Hi would like help  on these sasanian coins dont know if they are real genuine or fake. Most seem bit dodgy with mud on but i am no expert ::)
Thank you   :)

As far as I can tell (which is not very far) these look OK. You can dissolve mud by soapy, lukewarm water and some thumb rubbing. If the mud is so hard that it will not dissolve, try cooking until the metal is hot, plunging in ice cold water and attacking the crack in the mud with a wooden toothpick (or your nails.) Repeat as required.
