Welcome to the Forum.

It is a counterfeit 1795 dollar with no numistical value, most likely not even silver. This is the second one of these I have seen today. There was another one on another Forum.

Sorry, but Greenstang is correct. It is a counterfeit coin, and, in my opinion, should be destroyed, to keep someone from trying to pass it off as genuine later on down the road.

For future reference, get in the habit of researching on the web or in the Redbook to find out how many grams a coin you have should weigh.

Sorry - not a genuine silver dollar - probably a cheap Chinese counterfeit.  Even though the pics aren't very close up, date placement doesn't match any known examples, Liberty's profile looks too-cartoonish and the eagle's feathers (and lack thereof) are amateurishly engraved.
