Here they are. The details on the reverse of the columnario are one of the best I've ever seen, there is really very little wear. The 8 reales from Central American Republic is quite interesting, in that the edge design is that same as that on the bust-type 8 reales from colonial Spain. The 5 volcanoes you see on the coin represent the 5 provinces that made up the republic (Guatemala, Honduras, Costa Rica, El Salvador and Nicaragua).

Hate to see you holding them like that, but both are handsome examples for sure.

I agree with Coinfrog - handsome coins.
I only handle coins by their edge, but in this case, (and with most ancients as well), a thick patina will protect them from fingerprinting.
