This coin is part of a lot I'm looking at. These are the best pics I can provide. On the obverse I inserted an arrow toward some notation that seems to be unusual. Does this ever appear on an authentic example of this coin? [ ADDED: Looks like a reeded edge. I guess that means fake.]

It's the designer's name.
The coin is likely a fake made to imitate a valuable pattern coin.

Good question-the current pic becomes too pixelated when I rotate, crop, and enlarge.

There are a few legitimate Chinese patterns made by Italian engraver L Giorgi. (May have got the spelling wrong)

These are excessive rare and rarely appear in the market.

Looks like a replica of an L Giorgi pattern dollar.

You can see the lettering more clearly in the original post. Definitely looks way off. I also think the piastre is questionable, though seller says he brought it back from Viet Nam.
