Please show me a close up of the location of the 1 in the date in reference to the bust point. Your photos are not very clear, but it doesn't look like your date location is correct for VAM-2 (7 over 6).
Basics will help you with attribution.
First is always date and mm location.

I know there is no mm on this coin.
That is why I only asked for the date location and not the mm location.
I’m trying to get you to focus on the basics.
Date and mm locations are the starting points.

So does the date location look like it’s in the correct location for VAM-2?

Let me know if you have any questions to help you along.

Let's get more basic. Is the shape of the digits and lettering correct? What's it weigh?

Was it actually minted in the United States in 1887?

Coin looks flat
Letters look off
Coin overall is rough
Maybe a fake
