okiepb The vast majority of these coins are Numismatic Forgeries made in China. The chances of finding a genuine example are very low. Your example has all of the general characteristics of one of the copies NOT of a genuine coin. I suggest a specific gravity test which will quickly determine if the coin is silver or not.
