Hello, Community! I have a Libertas Americana Medal, how do I tell if it is a restrike or the real thing? Besides the pictures I have provided, here is what I know for certain: It weighs 25.6 grams, it is slightly larger then an Eisenhower dollar, the edge is completely smooth, not reeded or lettered, and is NOT magnetic at all. If anyone could let me know if this is the real medal, a restrike, and what is is worth, I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you!

I would suspect that it is a counterfeit and not an original or restrike. The details just seem cartoonish. I know little about them though, so I'd wait for other opinions.

Neither, it is a modern fake of very poor quality.
