Ok, a friend of mine listed this on ebay a few days back, i happened to be trawling what he was selling and came across this. I pulled out the Krause and then phoned him about it. He said he's had it for years and can't remember where he bought it. Weight is 25.1g he tells me.

I'm not really a world coin collector, but seeing the grade and price i thought i'd ask opinions about it before he sells it on, whether on ebay or an auction house.

Krause number KM 69

1. Metal appears to be pewter or other base white metal rather than silver
2. (pic1) Wreath has 20 flowers instead of 25
3. (pic2) Leaves are outlines only, and not solid.

With 97% confidence, I'll say that it is a modern copy.
