Welcome to the forum.

 

It is a copy, with surface texture and details that don't look like genuine ones. Once or if you have seen a good number of genuine and counterfeit examples, you will probably be able to tell the difference.

A good way to familiarize yourself with fakes is by looking up the coin on Ebay and comparing your coin to the other coins. Often pro or not, you can see the difference. Also, in addition to what Mark said about the texture and details not looking genuine - If something doesn't appear right to you, chances are you're correct. This coin is from 1776 so ask yourself, "does this coin have the characteristics of an 240 year old coin?"
