Agree that #1 is PMD.

To my aging eyes #2 looks strange. The upset edge appears to be folded over the legends. That shouldn’t be possible at the mint because planchets should go through the upsetting machine before striking.

My first though would be to measure its diameter with a decent caliper. US cents are supposed to be 19.05 mm so anything smaller would argue for PMD as well. If it’s full-size then I dunno. That would imply the coin was struck and then upset, which theoretically shouldn’t be possible
