Yours might be a later restrike.

 

The 1881. Adolphe Crémieux's death: obverse, bust; reverse, inscription; 68 mm by Borrel. looks definitely to be a later restrike. He was a prominent French-Jewish lawyer and politican LINK. As to value etc on either medal I have no idea.

Yes,...based on the photos, there are a couple, at least, that appear to be restikes; IMHO

There should be a stamp or signature on the edge of the medal.

Do the restikes have this stamp?

thank you,

elverno's re-strike page As you can see by the link, normally there is a re-strike mark but not always if the dies are privately owned. Do either of the medals have any edge marks?

 

The Spinoza was originally struck in 1932, so the patination could very well be original. The 1881 medal's patination still looks like a re-strike to me from the pics, but I could be wrong.

That is the cornucopia mint mark used from 1st January 1880 to the present, at some time after 1950 it was decided to add the year in which the medal was struck. So obviouslk not much help, as an original strike would have had that edge mark. This should be of interest to you LINK TO PARIS MINT MARKS
