Fun pair. Amazing how easy it often is to find centuries old cash coins.

If you have only a passing interest in cash coins, Remmelts is an excellent choice. The booklet costs practically nothing and it gives you immediate insight. It will not go into subtle details and imitations, though. It is in German, but that's not a big problem, especially with Google translate. Here is the entry for these two coins.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.
