I wanted to try to sell this until someone was kind enough to inform me (I should have known by appearance. Turns out it is also magnetic!!).

Lightweight, mushy details, sticks to a magnet, starting to rust - that looks typical of the "Vietnamese" steel forgeries. Apparently they were nice little earners for the locals during the War. Had an old Vietnam vet come to our coin club once, with a handful of US "silver" dollars, just like this piece.

Would look to be OK from a distance of 10 metres or more.
But not much closer.
