I suspect that this piece is fake and was probably cast from transfer dies that were fabricated from a genuine piece.
Undoubtedly an 1806/9 Overton 111 die state 'a' with the reverse rim cud at 9 o'clock.
The edge has a few remnants of what appear to be letters and/or symbols.
Fairly well done although the lettering and date numerals appear to be too thin.

The piece weighs 10 grams and has a natural gray appearance.
I'm not sure about the composition, but it has the "ring" of silver......asking $155 shipped.
