Lech Stępniewski:
Am I oversensitive about forgery or there is something wrong with that coin?

otlichnik:
My initial impression is that I agree that something feels a little "off".  But I am not sure what.  The diadem, nose and the oddly shaped shoulder all caught my attention but all have parallels in examples I looked up.  The heads of the two soldiers on the back too.  The lettering?

When I have more time on the weekend I may look more into this.

Can't determine yet if it is "bad" or I am just not used to seeing examples in this condition.
