Overweight ASEs? Fakes?

I got two older ASEs in the mail today.  Both are overweight -- one (with just the slightest bit of a hint of a patina) is overweight by 0.15 grams, the other (fairly tarnished) by 0.25 grams. 

Anything to worry about?

@$40/oz that first coin is overweight by $0.20 and the second one by $0.32. That's not much. I wouldn't worry about it.
