I don't think that it IS a fake, but a fantasy coin.

I agree with sel_69I. I think it is a fantasy coin. Interesting design.

Once you put a date, mint mark, and denomination on it, I'd call it a fake and not a fantasy coin.

There are lots of examples of fakes with dates and/or mintmarks that don't exist, like Trade dollars from the 1860's. If it's produced with intent to deceive, it's a fake, not a fantasy coin.

I feel pretty safe saying that there is zero to negligible gold (perhaps a wash on the surface) on this piece so no intrinsic value either.

You are the rascal today @just_carl.

Certainly worth less than face value, right?

Not every thing is worth something. When the Salvation Army turns you down, it's worth nothing.
