Augustus49 I own 6 silvered copper counterfeits dated 1886 Mo. I have never photographed them but I do that some have the long flat headed eagle design seen on your example. These coins were made in Mexico for local use. They are unlike the typical First Republic counterfeits because they contain very little actual silver. Many of the earlier counterfeits illustrated in Riddell's Monograph were made in the US, UK, and France. This type is very typical of the "dump" hoard discovered in the 1990's. Intact silvering is very scarce. High grade examples without cancellation cuts are somewhat scarce as well.
My book on Counterfeit Portrait 8Rs is available from Amazon or from me directly if you want it signed.
