Not sure if it is real. This coin was given to me by my grandfather many years ago.

Based on what I see in the pictures the coin is not a Class 1 Contemporary Circulating Counterfeit.

It is also not a Class 3 Numismatic Forgery.

In my opinion I would guess that it is a Class 2 Circulating Silver Counterfeit made for the Chinese merchant trade.

The clue is visible on the edge - the overlap is too long and does not align well. This in not typical of Mexico City edges made on a Castang machine using a pair of grooved edge dies. I may be incorrect which leaves the alternative as genuine. However, the market value of the coin would be identical.
My book on Counterfeit Portrait 8Rs is available from Amazon or from me directly if you want it signed.
