As for the 1885-P, the date looks better but the dentiles don't appear to be the same length all the way around.
I would say both are bad, and both are scary. The Chinese are getting better ... sadly.
from 1888- Philly. Yours is much farther away from the dentils. And for a coin that is in such good shape, the 8's are all wonky. It's a common date.
I didn't look at the 1885.
My .02 (x 50 )
If it's correct (I bet it's not), then testing for silver without damaging the coin would prove it either way.
Since a faker would not use real 90% silver to make this common date.
