I'm 99.9999999% sure that these are all reproductions, but wanted to be sure before I report to the owner since ancients aren't my thing. They were in a jar full of Morgan dollars that I'm looking over - they look "antiqued" and a little too perfect. Thanks for your help.

Edit: there is definitely a seam around the rim of the small coin.

Even to my bad eyes they scream copies. The contrast between the dark and shiny areas is too apparent. The rims are just too nice also.
