"If" it is real,maybe a dryer coin? Weight? Size? Does it stick to a magnet? What does the edge look like?

Is in the correct size and weight for a Morgan dollar? If the correct size, I am suspecting its under weight. Possibly from being Harshly cleaned with acid.

I's a fake and probably one of the most ridiculous counterfeits I have ever seen.

It really doesn't matter why. Could have been some dude in his garage looking for extra income.

How much do they weigh? Are they silver?

A long period in a clothes dryer or a rock tumbler will do this to a coin. Here's an earlier thread. Notice how the rim flattens and the details wear off. It's hard to fake this.

I've seen similar rim-raising when people hammer coins to make rings. But the central coin features stay intact.
