Did the reverse (what you may have been able to see of it) have the same finish as the obverse?

Perhaps a gentle tap when you first spotted it, revealing the absence of a metallic 'ting' sound, might have caught the seller out.

The item is made of what's termed 'filled resin' or 'cold cast resin'.

It's a resin loaded with fine particles of brass or copper 'dust'. When cured it forms a matrix of metal particles embeded within the resin and can be polished to give an appearance close to metal on casual inspection.

A slightly similar process is used in sintering, although this uses fusing rather than resin to bind the material together.
