@Fernagh, are you looking for a grade on this coin or opinions on whether it is fake or not? I can move this over to a better sub-forum depending on your answer. Thx.

Bogus for sure, man!
What strikes me the most is WHY anyone would waste the time and energy to make a fake coin that's only worth five cents; especially in that condition.

Cool fake. Like the blunt nose and totally-off mouth. Keep it as an example of a comically-done fake.

You have to wonder, just how many of these were manufactured?
Currently interested in buying 1957 and earlier Russian and Soviet coins. Let me know if you have any and we can hook up a deal!
