El Salvador 1 Centavo 1892 and 1893
Sounds like you have an intriguing specimen, Tina. Most of these old coins from El Salvador are pretty well beat up. If you have an uncirculated specimen, or one which is nearly uncirculated, you have a valuable coin.
NEVER CLEAN A COIN. CLEANING RUINS VALUE.
Here is what the catalogs say about your coin:
average circulated: $120
well preserved: $180
fully uncirculated: $400
Be sure you understand that these are catalog values, and actual values vary substantially. You can see an explanation about catalog values at our Terminology page.
Coins dated 1893 are more rare than coins dated 1892. Double the values if you have an 1893.

Requester description: 1892 I am contacting you having viewed your site. I have a coin which is totally different to those you are showing. On one side the coin has Republic del Salvador 1892 with a type of hat as its picture. On the reverse the coin says American Central UN CENTAVO with a leafy circular emblem with a bow at the bottom. I am very interested to know more about this coin and its value. I would advise I have more than one of these coins. I have a copy of my late fathers letter which confirms these coins are not fake and have never been circulated. I also have many other coins of intert from around the world, including unrecognised by coin dealers in the UK, some of which are American.
