I am 99% sure it's a fake, that patina and the mushy details give it all away.

I concur this one doesn't look to be even a close call.

Again, I'd ask how you came by it.

Siver coinage can be verified at least for composition (unfortunately only after you've purchased it) by determining its specific gravity.

OK.... thanks to all for your patience to verify.

I actually came across these coins at an antique dealer who was selling trinkets and thought I stumbled upon something. I do a lot of travelling.

Weight is around right - 20.73g is supposed to be the technical weight.

Details are wrong and here's the biggest mistake - the edge is supposed to be smooth, not reeded. Hence a modern replica.
