It appears to be a Roman cast semis: the left image is the reverse and should be turned 180 degrees, when you should see the prow of a ship going left. The other image is the head of Saturn right, with the S for semis behind.

As to its authenticity I'm afraid I don't know. The ship is normally going to the right not left. What is its weight?

Thank Alan; now that you addressed me in the right direction, studying it better it turned out to be a copy of a Republican Semis.
Thanks again. ;D ;D
