China
Inscription: 34th Year Pei Yang - Questions: Value? Genuine? Condition?

Someone told $13 K. I’m getting mixed info. What is your opinion?
I’ve looked/studied the real and fake side-by-side. The one I have truly looks real and in good condition.

It has the look of the countless counterfeits of this coin.
Some of the details don't match exactly with the real coin.
Personally I would say it's fake, fakes are worth zero.
Perhaps Josh and Paul could give their opinion on this.

Not sure on how to make up my mind on such an item, as Chinese ones are a bit harder to authenticate for me.

I see a small scratch on the back of the coin, where it looks like it reveled a bright layer of what looks like copper or bronze. It might be a small clue that the coin is only layered with what resembles tarnished silver, in which case, it be a counterfeit.

However, as I am not an expert in authentication of especially Chinese coins, best to take this as my opinion only.
