Default 3rd Colonial copper FTY dug today but.........

I have a question. Is it real or a counterfeit? How can I tell? And if it is a counterfeit are they worth anything?

Without knowing the size of the coin this is my best guess.

Information over on the right in this link for dimensions and weights.

Itís definitely real. And if itís a Machinís Mill coin, itís even better.
