The 1776 ia a New Hampshire issue, if not a copy. Would have to inspect coin to be sure. A lot of copies were produced, not all say "copy".

The 1776 New Hampshire is a copy since the actual coin has a tree and not the WM initials. The other coin is a copy of Massachusetts coinage but I can't tell which one. I would say these are vintage souvenir pieces that were bought at a gift shop.

You're welcome, authentic versions of the coins are worth substantial premiums. I wish I had better news.
