As most of you may know, I'm no enthusiast/collector of any such coins as I know all of you are. I'm merely a "picker" who picks yard sales, estate sales, flea markets, storage locker auctions etc. part-time looking for antiques & collectibles. The 2 posted coins were found within an old jewelry box amongst jewelry and many other contents found within a storage locker auction here in Jersey. They're quite worn and beat-up as you can see, and one is dated 1601(?) & the other 1776. Are these authentic? If not, not a big deal as we didn't pay much for the unit and recouped most out funds back from the scrap gold and other contents re-sold. Thank you all so much for your time, replies and thoughts!
