Just acquired. Do they look like 2-feathers?

I think they would both pass as Two Feathers.
As you probably know it is created from overpolishing of the die
similar to the Three Leggeed Buffalo

They are nice examples and a 21 S is a key date too!
I have a complete set and some singles but never handled a 2 feather Buffalo.
Good for you!
My favorite album!

I'm delighted to pick them up at $16!! It would be a good buy even with 3-feathers, for sure.

Good buy on the Buffs.

Buff's are my favorite American coin. I put together many sets over the years; principally with well-matched, half-horn, full date coins. My pride and joy was completing a full horn set. I was constantly on the prowl at shows, seeking Buffs that met my criteria. Although I owned some overdates and three-legged coins, I wasn't that much interested in the mint errors.

There was a dealer, now deceased, who was always trying to promote the two-feather errors. His prices were high, I thought, for these relatively minor and fairly common errors. Over time, I found a number of them, including a few 1921-S's. I took a handful of them to a show, wherein this dealer typically attended. He appeared to have the same pieces in his case that I'd been seeing for at least a few years. I offered to sell him my pieces for about 20% of his retail price .... Just as I suspected, no sale.
