    You are right - I wonder what that means? - Genuine or Fake?

    definitly looks like brass

    and lets remember, rare means rare. Rare and expensive means you probably don't have the real mcoy. That said, we are all hoping it is, and we are waiting for better pics!

    This will likely be my last post until we see more pics of MrBluesky's coin. Like CoinFetcher said, I too am hoping its the real mcoy - but have to admit that I'm having some doubts.

    The following attachments were described as being from a circa 1940 coin price guide ...

    It's difficult to tell from your photos but it appears there is an "R" etched into the coin to the right of the "O", like the one in this photo.
