How much was it if I may ask? Poland? Hmm?
Where did you buy this coin?
Encyclopedia of the Commemoratives Coins of the United States, but the images are too grainy to be of much help.........let me see if I can find my mizzo for comparison.
Commemoratives from the Mint in this era (circa 1921) were much more sophisticated & detailed. Your specimen may be "real" in the sense that it was really produced by a private mint to commemorate the Missouri Centennial.
Perhaps someone who specializes in these type commemoratives will see this & respond.
Welcome to CT!
I am like you Greenie. I am out at the ballfield with the boy and just Googled up some images to try and see any details that missed the mark without any luck. This isn't a piece you see every day, but it doesn’t sit quite right with me either. I hope for the OP’s sake I am dead wrong.
Obverse details are too well-defined for a Missouri, there are two odd elongated depressions which don’t belong in reverse fields, and the obverse rim is uncharacteristic of the genuine article, as is luster on both sides.
I guess I should clarify my stance as to what I consider obverse and reverse, because I don’t really know without consulting the books. I consider the dated side of the coin to be the obverse. I wouldn’t be at all surprised if I turnout to have that backward.
As promised, some pics of mine.

I would get my money back. Smells like a fake.
