Your coin appears counterfeit to me. Anyway the price in VF ranges from 1200~1400.

I concur. Look at the nose, hair, the "Fluer De Lis" is wrong on the crown, and lips for starters. Look at the flowers on the reverse at say 10 oclock, and 2 oclock. Very rounded. This is a good forgery a 100+ years ago, but now that people are not using this money. It's much more scrutinized especially by collectors. Back long ago, the trade business is fast. Nobody had time to really look at the details of the currency so it was "passable" at the time. Think if you were a merchant at night, and there was no lighting. Only lighting by cadle or torch.  I myself as a merchant would of thrown it into the register without hesitation, and issued change as needed. But, the next morning when I was counting my money. I may of not been so happy-

Surely this one pictured here is a fake coin! As far as the market price is concerned, for a decent grade, you will need to pay about ~1300. Year 1879 does not fall into one of those rare years...

well, this coin is 100% fake due to edge design i have also this coin and there is lots of difference in original and this coin. and the price of the original coin is Rs. 1050 - 1150. if it is in fine condition then it may be Rs 1300/- maximum.
