Why shouldn't I want mine read. I replied to your OP with thoughtful care. You'll have to ask the Mod. to Replace my deleted post, so you can read that my thoughts were Mint Processes related. I have never bothered to study gold coins until your OP about these 2 Incomplete images and then Limited data they provided. I've moved away from most US Minted coins, especially the varieties that are sure to be Counterfeited. They're all Overrated. Except for Mint Errors. As stated under my avitar, I study the more rare than coins, Civil War Tokens. My observations on your 2 picts were limited to the picts. I'd replied that I'd prefer to have the actual gold coins in hand. Your Title was your message that #1 was a counterfeit, leaving your responders to think that #2 was Genuine. So, I replied on that premise. BTW, I don't need to be 'forgiven' You're the trickster, trying to get over on your post readers/responders. Oh, What Fun. Trick or Treat.
