    Photos would be helpful.
    Sounds like it is just a gold-plated novelty piece...
    or it could be a modern Chinese counterfeit because they can afford to fake almost any coin and still make a profit.

    Can you post a picture of the coin in question?

    People fake U.S. coins all the time but I’m not quite sure exactly what you’re talking about.

    I used to wonder the same thing. When you think about it, it makes sense...... If you are counterfeiting hundred dollar bills, they will come under a lot of scrutiny. However if you are counterfeiting one and five dollar bills you stand a far better chance of getting them out and about with less people taking notice.

    Assuming it was is a fake, and it was made in 1965, it could have been worth it back in the day. A roll of them would be work about $40 today adjusted for inflation.

    True, but I was referring to the Henning nickels that have been discussed here.:)
