    It seems that there are several variations with seven and eight rays being common. Mine shows the star escaping from the crescent while most dies show it centered. Every die is a separate, hand work so it would be possible to find anything. Do note the ones with five rays are fakes.

    Seems like stars are usually better executed than the one on the OP. Also, in the reverse chip it looks like there is some copper or iron mixed in with the silver. Might the OP be unofficial?

    The horn silver deposits tell me that it is authentic.
