Sounds more like a flea market. Lots of fake coins being sold at those places. Even if they don't stick to a magnet, only means not made of Steel or iron. Although other metals are magnetic too. More than likely made of something like Aluminum or some other soft metal. However, it has been known that in China some counterfeiters do use real Silver to make their fakes and try to sell as expensive coins. Regardless they are yours now. Lesson learned. Look for a book called the Red Book by Whitman Publishing. Almost something about all coins in there.

He may call himself "panther in the biker world" but he's called a "crook" here in the real world!

I saw a display case full of these in a Virginia City souvenir shop three years ago. They were very coy about their authenticity. I'd guess they had them marked up 50 times what they paid the oriental prince of thieves.

None are silver. All are counterfeits that have about no value.

I am hoping they are at least all silver
Those are typical made in China replicas that you can buy online for about $2.00 each.
At the very best they may be silver plated (but I doubt it) and would have a zinc or brass core.
Sorry about you being taken but a lesson learned.

Notice how they all have that grayish dark toning around the edges and the devices? That is a huge clue that these "coins" have Chinese origins.

The counterfeiters use this faked toning to make you think the coins are just toned from the aging process.

If you cannot get a refund just chalk it up as "tuition" in getting your "degree" in numismatics. You'll be much more cautious next go around.

Sorry you got taken.

All coins appear to be fantasy coins and are likely made out of base metal.
