    Fakes! Fakes! Fakes!

    All ye who hear! Post your fake finds here! I got this fake Netherlands Daadler on Coin Beach, Delaware a few years ago. Weighs 19.98 grams, but I'm pretty sure it's a reproduction! I posted about it once upon a time ago. Boy, it had me going for awhile. At least I think it's a fake.Click image for larger version.

    The watch I found bezel was broken, and the winding pin didn't do anything, so I took the front & back covers off and found this!
    The Date ring was stationary, and the power indicator on the back was a sticker!

    But the excitement was fun while it lasted!

    Freedom isn't FREE! Thank You to all who choose to Protect & Serve in our military and Law Enforcement. But I am ashamed and embarrassed lately. To those FEW who would tarnish the badge and muddy the uniform, that I proudly wore for 20 years, YOU don't deserve to be wearing them! ALL human life is valued. Compassion, RESPECT, and morality is paramount.
    To those who don't or won't value these,
    GET OUT! I LOVE the U.S.A., and this hobby!

ID:	1756738 I dug this a couple of years ago at an old high school field. Real ones were made of silver but this one is made of what I believe is brass. May be an old counterfeit used in commerce or a recent Chinese knockoff made to sell to gullible coin collectors.

    The real coin does in fact say "silver coin" in English. They were used for trade. Minted in the early 1900's in China and there was a smaller 50 cent version that said "copper coin". I don't believe the one I dug was made from German Silver...…..Click image for larger version.

    Thanks Clad2silver ....To me it looks like german silver which is copper , nickel , and zinc NO silver its used to make many things in Asia or its made out of copper nickel like US Nickels ....All the fake US $1 AND 1 Peso i seen are made out of these two with maybe some lead added to bring down the cost of the material ....5 million coins were dumped in the bay near pasay ...For many years they were sold in the streets of manila when they started to run out they made fakes and still sell them as of today they still sell them 78 years later .....so your fake to me looks like a 1908
