Greetings...

Again the date is unknown..... I am a little suspiscious of this one... I'm guessing it's before 1700 but I don't know.... appears to be overstruck?

weighs about 24 grams
non magnetic

Thanks!

Yeah, I don't like the look of the coin either, 1 too round, 2 plain edges? unusual.

I think the probability of this being anything but a modern numismatic forgery would have to be extremely low.

Divulging the source by which you acquired it may add context to that assessment.

Ask for your money back! This is a modern "replica" as that's what they like to call it.
