Now I know it is a fake coin. What a pity.

I don't discount that possibility. But, normally that pronouncement is accompanied by some facts as a way of explanation. I welcome any that you can document - this site is designed to show the authentic and document the fakes as well. Thanks for your input - I hope to hear more on this one from you. JM
