Hi Folks. I hope everyone is staying positive and testing negative. I have a question regarding the identification of the following coin. I have searched pictures, and seem to have come close at times, but can't seem to find a definite match.

Impossible to be sure now, but I can't dismiss the possibility that it may? be a tourist fake that has been well patinated with an extended in ground burial to give it an authentic desert patina.
Also makes identification and authentication difficult.
I stand to be corrected.

Keep on investigating. This coin needs a better answer that I can give.

Size and weight will help also if you can remove it from the 2x2 and take a better picture. This will help with the ID of the coin.

Looks like it might be of the Tyre 'Club Series'
Svoronos 709 perhaps ?

I thought the lower left figure looked like a female
But it seems to be a club

Same difference really ........
