A coin collector would be able to tell if it is real or fake and if it's worth anything. You can always look it up online as well...see what it's selling at on other sites.
I Have An 1865 Silver Dollar. It Has An Eagle On Back, Washington(?) On Front. Is It Worth Anything?
Well that last guy was REALLY believable. I just bought this quarter, and I believe it to be a fake. I was totally taken.
A facsimile is to 'make like', which means he doesn't think it's the real thing. Take it to a coin collector and talk to them about it. They know coins and currency, they would best be suited to tell you. Hope this helps you out.
