Congrats @Mark68 , great find.
I feel like I've seen a coin like this somewhere before...
Congrats are in order,
If it is real it definitely has a history behind it from the circulation wear. One can imagine.
"Wear" does not indicate authenticity. If a worn coin is used as the model, the copies made from it will exhibit the same loss of detail.
My main concern is that the "worn" areas show the same surface texture as the more protected part of the design. Circulation wear usually changes the texture of the worn areas.
@CaptHenway : here's a shot of the obverse in natural sun light.

More than likely my eye sight is going lol
Nailed it! I think the mouth and hair detail gives it away. Good info thanks.
