Fool me twice, they must have been a drunk blind dog... LOL After taking a couple pictures, there are soooooo many ways this thing screams fake ya fool. I'm thinking it is made from brass and coated with ? I still find it an interesting piece, but wonder, just how the heck anyone, even a brand new rookie would think this was real. Whadyathunk?

The date/mm combination should be all you need.

I'm debating on leaving it as is as only a drunk-blind man would think it real, or finding some small letter punches and stamp it with fake somewhere on the back.

The question is, was it made to try and fool a collector, or to pass in circulation?

Yes. But the date and MM should definitely be a clear sign this is fake. Not sure if this is a contemporary counterfeit or a modern one.

I'm sure one of the folks here that collect contemporary counterfeits could tell you.
