is this a fake irish florin?

If it isn't, then it may have been sand-blasted or something. It certainly looks like a cast coin though, how does the edge look?

similar, there is milling there, but its the same... odd that they would fake a florin...

If there are even a few cents to be made, there will be someone, somewhere who will counterfeit it.


I don't know if this one is fake, but looks like it is possibly cast rather than struck. Whatever the reason, it doesn't look natural to me. Maybe dipped in acid?
