For a test you may use 

  $ dirmngr-client --validate y.crt
  dirmngr-client: certificate is valid

  $ dirmngr-client --validate x.crt
  dirmngr-client: validation of certificate failed: Certificate expired

This is a very simple tool which connects to the dirmngr and asks it to
validate a certificate by using dirmngr's own validation code.  It is
actually a debugging fature for the validation code.  Using the dirmngr
daemon has the advantage that it will cache certificates and validation
results and try to get missing certificates from other places.
