Welcome to the forum.

Yes, this is a questionable coin, as shown in the attached picture. The space between the reedings is not right either.

Thanks! Nice explanation sir... I got more coins that I can't tell if they're genuine or not... what do you think of these 2 philippine 1 peso coins with chopmark, dated 1903&1905. what are those chopmarks? Could you translate it? And also my 1914 yuan shih kai dollar w/inkmarked, is it real or fake? Thank you very much.

Sorry, I can not help you 1 Peso Philippine coin, but 1914 YSK dollar is a reproduction. The edge reeding is not right. The first picture is for genuine and second picture is for fake.
