1. Something about the surface looks wrong. Too shiny. If it is real, I would guess it has been polished.

2. The magnet comments got me wondering. Are you ever likely to find a fake copper coin with a magnet? I mean, copper is really cheap. Wouldn't most counterfeiters just use that to make the fakes? Or is there really something cheaper than copper that has been used, and is magnetic?

100% fake but still one cool looking counterfeit. Bet coinweek would do a article on it for educational purposes as it shows almost all the red flags buyers should watch for. Not knocking you negatively its an awesome looking fake and collectible in its own genres.

Who's the best person to send this to attribution and Authentication gonna really be the only way to have this figured out. If fake I'll let everyone know and if not I'll let everyone know .

Fields look really off, similar to counterfeits I've seen before.
