    1) You don't need 2 threads on the same topic
    2) Those pictures are not nearly clear enough to be able to provide an accurate grade
    3) Those are both common coins that can easily be found in a world coin bin 4/$1. I provided you a link in your other thread.

    I found a link that says they are worth about 250$

    @spirityoda you're good with world coins. Can you explain the difference between OP’s coins and the other.

    The dollar symbol goes before the number.. like this $250

    Here are the amounts minted for your 2 coins per each year.
    1960 - 99,144,000
    1965 - 154,720,000

    There is no reason for them to be worth $250.00
    (Unless they were minted on Copper Nickel planchets as mentioned on the next posts)

    In 1960, 1962 & 1965 a handful of coins made from a copper-nickel planchet were minted and found their way into circulation (coins during this period had a brass composition). Some have classified these coins as trial pieces while others say it is a true unique circulating type coin. The pieces listed at $250 are the copper-nickel planchet variety I believe and very few have been graded.

    according to my 2019 Krause world coin catalog Mexico, KM#426, metal-bronze. size-20.4mm

    1960 - mintage-99,144,000
    grade/value
    VF20-$0.10 cents XF40-$0.15 cents MS60-$0.50 MS63-$0.75 cents

    1965 - mintage-155,720,000
    grade/value
    XF40-$0.15 cents MS60-$0.25 MS63-$0.35

    your coins are super common. Both your coins combined are probably worth 50 cents - $1.00

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    KM#426a size 20.5mm metal- copper-nickel

    1960 VF20-$250 XF40-$300 MS60-$375
    1965 VF20-$250 XF40-$300 MS60-$375

    must be size 20.5mm and be copper-nickel.
