No idea if yours is legit. Looks a bit mushy in the details. You also didn't post the size or weight.
Test strike? Many uniface "test strikes" will have a mold number on the reverse.
That thought crossed my mind. But I really don't know.
Reminds me of a piece I had about ten years ago, which was also 18th century (1719).
To this day, the French remain in love with Benjamin Franklin. Below is the medal struck at the Paris Mint in honor of BF's birthday.
I just now saw this post, and link. That's interesting.
@SensibleSal66's piece is indeed rather mushy looking, which could indicate a cast copy... or it could be the real McCoy, just heavily worn. I am not so quickly inclined to dismiss it as a fake. Again, I really don't know, but it could indeed be legit- just in rough shape?
I was thinking the same thing, but that reverse makes it look like it is a cast copy.
@lordmarcovan . I must of not stated , but this isn't my Metal . I was merely presented with it to evaluate . If you need more Pictures or have questions just ask and I will mail them an email . I have come to realize that this is an expensive piece in very nice condition and would like to have this one solved .
The reverse on the second one is not the same as the reverse on the first one.
