My first experience with these issues, and I've learned that authenticity can be uncertain. If anyone knows enough to be able to offer an opinion, I would be grateful.

Hi po_bob, I don't like the look of the 5 Mark ... see below when compared with Numista https://en.numista.com/catalogue/pieces10810.html



Two things that immediately stand out on the obverse are the crudeness of the twin circular lines in places and the side of the star that passes under the letter 'G' is not straight.




While on the reverse both the circled letters 'Q' and 'G' don't look correct and there should be a noticeable gap between the arrowed letters 'U and 'B'.
