Wouldn't it be nice if this was real ?
But unfortunately it likely is not.

Look here for the real thing.

Unfortunately the images in your reply 2 are pretty convincing in showing that your coin is probably a cast made from this original.

The original is ex-mount, and an attempt has been made to repair the missing border pellets by punching in circles. If you compare your piece you will see the identical punched circles, and if you compare the other details on the two coins you will see that on yours they are less well defined, another indication your piece is a cast

I'm sorry, but I think you need to return it to the dealer for a refund if possible.

Thanks Alan for the info
Im new to collecting world 

Hope this is a valid question im still learning this hobby sorry sound a bit numb 😌

Is it possible the die could have been damaged
And repair made to it before coin struck
Hence both have similar indentations. I noted the other is probably an ex mounted.
Any idea which country its located? Mine in u.k

I will try upload clearer pic  my samsung s6 glass on lens ( ( (busted hence cant focus properly.


Thanks

No, the damage to the right hand coin happened *after* it was struck, so when it was originally struck the border pellets went all the way round. Any other coin struck from the same dies would have the continuous border, and the fact that your piece has the same damage (but also with signs of being cast) shows it cannot be from the original die.

I am sorry, but I think there is no doubt that this is not a genuine coin, even if a die identical coin would not have existed. Look at a lot of pictures of these coins and you get a good feel of what they should look like and why this one looks modern. I don't want to help fakers, so I am giving a method that will will cost you time and help you judging other coins also while fakers won't get it.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.
