Hi guys, let me know if this is real or fake.

Weight is 26.8g and non-magnetic.

This is a questionable coin. The wear pattern of edge, as shown in the enlarged section picture does not match the wear pattern of other part of the device. High quality reproduction will have the correct weight and non-magnetic, since it is made with silver.

This coin has deceptive toning but its character (both Chinese and English) and dragon scale betrayed it. Genuine coin will never have English letter or Chinese letter like this, if you use very high resolution magnify to see this character, you will totally understand why it is a fake coin.

Here are 3 examples and you can feel different feeling about same characters in genuine and fake coins. Odd number image shows character in genuine coin while even number image shows in fake coin.

That is what we said 字口是否好。I am sorry but I don't know how to professional translate some Chinese coin judging jagon to English and hope someone could help.
