By my records, SN 23613 would have been made 1961/62
SN 88089 would have been built 1970/71.
Hope this helps.
Can't tell the much about the condition or features from the limited pictures.
Others can certainly give more advice. Prices seem to be top dollars?

I see those vintage Anschutz 54 rifles on GB for much less $ minus the value of the scopes. Neither scope has the power to get the best from these 54's. 24X to 36X scopes would be more fitting.

SN 23613 has the heavy 28" barrel.
SN 88089 has the standard 26" barrel and may also have the more desirable dual extractor bolt?

I'm not one to put the kabash on a fellow forum member wanting to sell a gun, but since this is actually an indirect posting for a dealer, I'll chime in.
Both are older guns. Neither scope is worth more than 300 bucks independent of the gun, and attached to the gun, doesn't add a $300 premium..
While one does have nice wood, my weakness, I think that both of them are overpriced.
I think a better deal could be found, but also note that I don't closely follow the market for these types of Anschutz rifles. I'm just giving my gut reaction as someone interested in the brand for ages.

The one with the Leupold is a 1407 from 1970-ish. The other one is an old - maybe 1960-ish - barrelled action in a 1407 stock.

Neither, IMHO, is worth remotely close to $1,899.

Rifle 88089 should be 1970. My first rifle was s/n 88072, and 1970 proofed. Judging by the wear to the bluing on the bolt handle, I'd say this has been around the block a few times.

The other stock is pretty, but has been refished. I can't quite tell, but the fore-end may have been modified.

I'll spit out what everyone here is thinking. They're priced on the wrong side of $1300.

I notice that the second one has no dovetail on the ring and the scope is mounted on the bridge only. When did Anschutz start grooving the ring as well as the bridge? Also, I might be interested in the Redfield 16X if someone wants to buy the rifle and is not exactly enamored with the scope. Don't want to make a firm commitment to buy he Redfield as the seller gives no details of the scope but I thought I'd throw that out in case anyone is mulling over buying that rifle. But, given the asking price, and the plethora of choices of 54 Match rifles being offered on RC and GB, the term "grossly overpriced" comes to mind.

Scopes

The Redfield 16x looks to be a redfield 6400, the 20x normally will sell higher/quicker. $300/$350
The Leupold 12x/target normally $225/$300 depending on vintage/condition.

Subtract these $ from the asking price and it is still about $500 too high.

I might pay 1800+ for both but not for just one rifle

As Tim notes, the stock on 23613 has been refinished, and it does not appear to be original to the early 60's (late '50's?) barreled action. It has no checkering (or stippling).
