Someone should chime in shortly to help you with what appears to be some sort or an ancient coin or a corroded replica of an ancient coin.

What are the immediate red flags of it being a cast fake? I want to learn how to tell.

Thanks!

See this post and you will recognize the look of your coin right away as a bonded resin to bronze.

The main giveaway here that this coin is not authentic, is that for this particular design the genuine coins are supposed to be silver, where your coin clearly is not silver.

Such wrong-metal replica "coins" are often sold in the markets around Kabul, where Westerners are likely to visit. We've seen quite a lot of such pieces come onto the market since Western involvement in Afghanistan began.
