I have enhanced your picture quality as attached. The surface and dentals were polished badly and tough to see the details to determine its authenticity.

Attached are also pictures of NGC MS61 of this 1903 Pei Yang dragon dollar for design comparison.

Thank you! Yes, unfortunately it was cleaned with water and soap. My grandma did not know that you should not clean coins. She thought the coin were dirty. Lol. Do you know what is the value if genuine?
