    1849 Mormon Ten Dollar Gold Piece-Is This One Fake?

    I know a woman that came across this 1849 Mormon $10 gold piece. She doesn't know if its real or if its fake. She let me take pictures of it and they are included down below. I personally believe that it is fake due to the fact that the coin says "pure gold" and there are places on the coin that the gold looks to have been taken off. Thanks for any advice that you may have!

    looks like lead under where the 'gold' is scratched.

    It's poorly made cast copy.
