First stop: weight. Is that correct for the type?

Second stop: find a picture of a definitely authentic one, with good detail, and compare. Does this one look crudely done by comparison?

Next stop: microscope. Get a good look at the surface and see if you see granularity or other signs of shoddy casting.

 Thanks for the Feedback fellas. Yes  I found a good picture of a genuine one, and this is definatly a Dud !!!  But I don't think I can Blame the Oriental Artists {Counterfieters} either. I found another pic of exactly what I have , Proudly stating it was made by " Swedish Vasa Dura " Replica Medals, Coins, and Collectable Badges .
