The Communist "Soviet" Chinese period of coinage is very confusing. I've studied this area of numismatics for at least 25 years and NOBODY really knows a lot of the details. The Soviet Chinese are definitely known to have counterfeited YSK 'Fatman' dollars up until their ultimate take over in 1949. They needed good silver to exchange for war materiel and food, etc. Today of course everything is faked in China. What you want to know is if a coin is worth something or not. I have an 'authentic' Soviet C/S YSK and I also bought a modern fake to compare the difference, they are usually easy to tell apart. Soviet and Nationalist era FANTASY coins are still very collectible. Your example above would be considered a fantasy and contemporary with the Soviet period - not a modern fake. The Soviets wanted good metal to maintain their reputations as trusted traders. Nationalists who caught merchants with SOVIET countermarks were immediately executed. So I never bought the story that a jeweler (or his assistant) manufactured these for sale in Shanghai. You can see a full range of SOVIET coins in my Moneta Museum:
