Does it look authentic?
No way, Jose.

It does not. The metal does not appear to be silver and is rather luster-less. The surfaces appear to have a brushed antiqued appearance, which the US Mint did not do to general circulation coinage.

That's a terribly made copy. If you're not certain about coins like that, please don't buy anything unless or until you have studied and learned much more.

Both fake. What's the story?
Collector, occasional seller
The patina alone suggests Chinese counterfeit. Darken the entire coin almost black, then polish off most of it....
Both are fakes.
If it looks concrete, it's excrete.
I saw similar ones being sold on Etsy and noticed the edges immediately before other things. Is that where it came from?

Great for target practice.
Clearly fake coins.... surfaces pitted and polished... just poor copies. Cheers, RickO
I saw just the top of your first photo before I saw your question, and instantly thought "that's fake."
