Material: Silver-plated (bronze?) or debased silver alloy

A very interesting conversation piece and a great addition for the ones interested in contemporary counterfeits.

I collect all deceptive counterfeit and fake coins, (provided the price is right), simply because they provide a learning tool in how to identify them, and not be defrauded.
Most coin dealers worth their salt maintain a 'black' collection for the same reason, and also to educate their customers.

coinworldtv Very nice counterfeit - I love the die work.

I too am fascinated by old counterfeits as many people know.

Please anyone, please send me a message with your offer for the coin.

I am usually selling on eBay and they do not allow me to list this kind of material.

If the price is right (for both of us) than we might strike a deal.

Since this is a legal non-monetary non-circulating coin produced by an entity which has no current standing legally, the people at eBay should not object. Every day there are numerous Contemporaneous Circulating Counterfeits posted.

I prefer to by CCC types on a venue like eBay to determine a fair market value. For this type, I have little to no expertise on market worth.

"Contemporary fouree" should get the point across in eBay-land.

Nice example! I've accumulated a few CC lion thalers through the years... plus maybe(?) one silver ducat. Typically the CCs of the Dutch trade coins emanate out of the eastern Mediterranean region.
