asked if it might be a contemporary
imitation or just fake
I was just saying that I couldnít say whether it might be fake
or genuine from the photos.
Put another way, I donít see anything that would make me conclude that it is fake
, but likewise I couldnít say that itís not fake
either as it is very hard to be sure of any coin on photos alone, and there is some ambiguity. Eg there appears to be an area
of raised metal in the lower right field
of the reverse
which I canít explain. And the dirt (which looks fresh) could equally be hiding other possible defects or conversely indications of genuinely struck coin like flow lines in the silver (Iím not suggesting you clean it!).
As I said above though I wouldnít say itís fake
, Iím just not able to say that it isnít fake
. If you have concerns it might be worth posting in the fake
coin section to get some additional views.
