But, I see what you mean
Top one: red
bottom one: red brown
Bottom one is toned and of a lower grade. Both are red IMO
I’m in agreement with the above post by a red copper connoisseur. Both of the coins look RD to me, as well. But even if you disagree, those two coins still serve as good illustrations of the point that there are different colors/shades within each classification of BN, RB and even RD.

I would call it worth less money, color notwithstanding.
I would say they are both red.
The second coin certainly lives in the twilight zone of red to red brown.... In the chart by @1Mike1, just look at the last one in Red and the first one in Red Brown....Cheers, RickO
