    Looks like a play-money version of a gold sovereign.

    Perhaps some environmental factor going on? Were any test pieces done in a different composition? Don't know, just throwing that out there.

    Any idea...?

    Oldhoopster It seemed like a good idea at the time.

    I'm not an expert, but it might be a contemporary counterfeit. It may have had a gold wash or gold-like coating at one time. That may be gone due to being buried
