The patterns on your specimen look soft and mushy, not crisp, so it is probably a replica. Your coin is not simply worn, but it was made with mushy patterns, probably using a casting process. A genuine coin is struck between two pieces of hard metal. See our page (above) for a picture of a genuine coin.
