Default Question on Postumus Coin...

Quick question on a Postumus coin I have. This Antoninianus is listed as silver, but on the bust crown, there is a patch that appears to be copper or bronze although the rest of the coin appears to be silver. Is this a common occurance where poor bullon is used for the coin, or is this possibly a fake?
