Did I do good on these buys for my Whitman type sets?
A while back I posted about trying to fill some of my Whitman Bookshelf albums for foreign type sets, specifically asking about the prevalence of counterfeits for some scarcer issues. I got some good advice and while still pursuing raw coins, I have tried to be very careful about what I am adding.
In that vein, I am hoping folks here can take a look at two recent purchases and let me know if you see any red flags. I am fairly confident I did okay on both purchases, but I know I still have a lot to learn so any feedback, good or bad, will be highly appreciated.
First coin, which I was warned was widely counterfeited, an 1849 Godless British Florin:
Second coin, a 1921 Mexican Independence Two Pesos:
