    Cast copy. That is obvious on uneven reverse side and eagle head coupled with wings.

    Hello,
    I'm sorry, but that is a very bad copy. The whole character is very unclean.

    The pitting on the reverse is a giveaway to this being a cast fake as stated above.

    More specifically, it's a crude casting of a Souval Minesweeper with a spurious "4" mark added for good measure. It's interesting to note that this faker went on to improve the quality of his reproductions. Here you see two more examples of this fake Souval showing progressively increasing sophistication.

    Best regards,
