This is a fake that shows that the counterfeiter was getting lazy. On the obverse it looks like a J1154/P1298 Trade Dollar Pattern (there are only about 6 genuine patterns of this type known). However, the reverse is of J1220/P1362.


The difference in detail is crazy. The denticles are off, the face is off, the cap is off, etc. etc.

And it has the same reverse die as CF-$T1-1872-0001 which says “TRADE DOLLAR.” Genuine pieces of this year have “COMMERCIAL DOLLAR.”

On all specimens of this type, there is a small die chip between the two eastern-most stars on the obverse.
