I agree, it is a fake.
In the future, please rotate and crop your photos.

Wrong metal plus parting line on edge equals fake. Hopefully you can get your money back @sjd.

I have three different cast fakes of this design of Syracusan dekadrachm - one of them is silver plated. I have never bothered to weight them - fakery too obvious.

Very easy to identify; they all have a very obvious circumferential casting seams, design detail very mushy, color rather coppery, rough fields with either rounded tiny pits and pimples.

Definitely a fake-I don't even have to know much about ancient coins to know this one is fake.

Good piece of advice to keep in mind with Syracuse dekadrachms:

If you even have to ask, it's fake.
