Can you help me with information about this coin.  It was found near an old railroad bed.

Answer
Hello Edward,

It looks like you have a Chinese Cash coin. They are highly counterfeited but the good news is that the value is about the same - real or fake.

Here is a link to a lot that you can buy now, about 30 cents per coin. If you can get an exact ID on this coin the value might top at $1 to $2.
