Date: 1929 - Question: Identification?

Had this coin packed away over 40 years. When cleaning out old jewelry I came across it and decided to look it up. I think it may have significant value Help :)

I am very doubtful of your coin's authenticity due to the large chances of it being a fake, and that it doesn't look to be in high quality, in terms of what I believe it due to its manufacturing. Anyways, as I am not an expert in authenticating items, I would recommend waiting for a response from someone else on this site, and if they think it is real, it would be worthwhile to have it sent to be authenticated. But, to the more experienced in authentication of items through photos, if it is a easy fake, then it is worth only a few dollars if lucky.

Found the description below for such a coin:

The globe has slightly different pattern to a real coin of this design, and I would say that the man looks abit unconvincing next to a real example too. I would say this is a fake with Josh.
