    That doesn't look familiar to me, real or fake. Should I recognize that type?

    Very common fake. It is somewhat of a copy of a William Moulton New Hampshire copper. The thing is the coin that it is a copy of was not a genuine coin, sort of a copy of a copy. The New Hampshire coppers are somewhat of an enigma, the only certainty was the authorization for them. There are a few coins that are purported to be originals, but none can be proven.
