I got this about a year ago with some coins I bought at an estate sale. I wasn't collecting coins at the time so sold the others but I didn't know if this was real or not. I finally bought a gram scale and now know it's not real (over 2 grams over weight) but I am curious if this is an early counterfeit. It is silver.

thanks in advance,
Blair

Post some pictures here. If your weight is correct it is unlikely to be genuine, that is way overweight.

No good information to allow a comment on the thread hijacking post. On the OP coin, clearly a fake and not a contemporary one. From the appearance, I would be very dubious about it being silver.
