    That is a modern made piece made by David Greenhalgh of the U.K. His business is called Grunal Moneta and you can see his name as the moneyer on your first picture - GRUNAL ON TAN. Here is his website http://www.grunalmoneta.co.uk/index.html

    There are lots of people around the world doing this, mostly for reenactors (SCA) or museums. Sometimes they show up out of context and confusion ensues.
