I'm not really into the patina, looks lacquered and corroded and cleaned. But then again it could be a fake patina on a fake coin. I don't really know but it doesn't stick out as glaringly as some of the other examples you've noted recently. I could go either way on this one.

(IMHO) Lettering and the crowns don't look right. Also polushka's were made out of scrap copper. They are very thin and almost none are as round as that one.

Definitely bad but perhaps a contemporary counterfeit. Alexbq2 is correct, the crowns

and lettering are not even close to the genuine.
