This looks like one of your coins!

Seriously, this "Owl" is the most commonly seen Owl forgery out there,
a cast underweight base-metal fake. These particular fakes always look
the same, same flan shape, same missing central dot in the theta.

You'll know this, of course, but some authentic Owls are missing the
central dot in the theta as well, so it's not a foolproof forgery
diagnostic.
