Let's try this again.Both coins are the same diameter. The brighter silver coin is .125 thick. Something tells me their both counterfeit. Any thoughts on what else to look for.
Thanks.

Pix aren't best but by the reverses they look fake. What is the weight, and do they stick to a magnet? Have you tried a tissue test to see if actually silver?

I don't have a scale for weight, I have a strong magnet and neither one sticks at all.there isn't much difference between the coins with the tissue test.you pick up the same color difference look as without.

Both good questions. Pics aren't very helpful.

The 86-o in the first pic is fake, the second one looks like a VF example although until there's better pics I can't tell for sure if this one is fake.

I agree with SilverDollar2017. Have the weight checked.
