I picked this coin up at a flea market. Unfortunately the seller couldn't give me information about its authenticity. I've been told by a local coin dealer that it probably wasn't genuine. So I am posting it here for any additional information that can be related regarding its status.

It is non-magnetic.

I appreciate any information.

The small size and poor focus of the images can hinder some replies that could prove helpful.

Rim doesn't look promising. More info required. I'm leaning towards fake at the moment.

A genuine example even in fine grade is easily a 300 usd coin.

Have a close look at the fields with high powered loupe for signs of casting

Find accurate weight

Comparative ping tone test, but that may be difficult to find an exact equivalent 3.6 candareens coin.

Coins copied from coins almost always show signs of indistinct finer details in the designs. Copy fakes also often show inconsistent dots inside the edges and indistinct uneven edge milling.

Looks like the dragon's head is a bit off. Check out these genuine 1906 in PCGS for comparsion.
