    How much would this be worth I tried to do some research on it but couldn't find much, I'm not an expert on coins,
    Information on the bottom it probably says, .4R. G or maybe C most likely G . 1863. M. L .10D. 20 c or g

    Better pictures of both sides of the coin would be helpful.

    Oldhoopster It seemed like a good idea at the time.

    Looks like it might be a cast copy/counterfeit, but better pics are needed for confirmation

    Okay, the coin also seems to be modified on the back but probably still worth something 20190819_210636.jpg

    What does it weigh?
    If it's rare, it's most likely fake.

    Small digital scales for coins and jewelry are very inexpensive,
    and very often questions can be answered just by knowing the weight.

    It looks like a real coin to me that was turned into a love token.

    This coin is pretty rare, but I have no doubt that it's genuine. Unfortunate that someone chose this particular coin to make into a love token rather than a common one, but such is life. There are two varieties for the 1863 Ce-ML, yours being the small C.
