Hello everyone and Merry Christmas!

 

What do you make of this coin? Genuine or not?

Thank you, Merry Xmas 2 U 2! My specialty are the large coppers, but this coin does not look right. I would say that the contours are too sharp and that the coin seems to have been traveled in something like a plumber's toolbox to make it look circulated.:shock: Nobody would mistreat a commemorative like this. The uneven coloring does not look original either. Sigi

Thank you for your opinion, sigistentz. The weight is correct though.

First try to stand it on the edge. See if it stands perpendicular to the table. I do not like what I see, but it can be the photographs. Look at the middle of the column. It looks like that it does not "stick out" of the field enough...

Look at the middle of the column. It looks like that it does not "stick out" of the field enough...-->I compared it with a genuine one (bought from an auction house)

-->Looks the same.

 

Maybe I'll just send it into an auction-->If it's a fake it'll come back.
