    I would guess that it is, in fact, a counterfeit coin. I have found several of these over the years. They are a lead alloy similar to pewter. The ones I found include a Morgan dollar, Barber half, Seated quarter, and Barber quarter.
    There are people who collect these and sometimes they bring more than the original silver coin.
