Hello I'm trying to find out whether my coin is legit or not. I know it's from the Tripoli era from what I found. It took me a long time to find a picture of it Internet of the same coin I have. But none of the ones I have found are the exact same. On my coin I have a crescent moon or they get backwards see right above the top of the cross. I have yet to find one similar to mine and I'm hoping someone has seen this specific coin before. Thank You

You coin is trying to be a County of Tripoli Crusader Gros, issued under Bohemond VII, as the authentic example below. Yours is sadly a cast reproduction (evident from the 'sandy' detail, and the anomalies in the fields that you have identified), of little value.

What he said, plus you can see the seam and where the casting sprue was broken off and not dressed.

Egad, I literally have exactly the same one you do!
Of course, mine is also a cast repo.

Thank You Everyone that responded. Stinks that it's a fake. It's still cool to have.
