古陶酒土云 Last character (compressed in one) = the simplified form of 壜 ＝ jug
The above wording is a commercial slogan for the Tao brand wines
Furthermore, since the text is shifted to the lower right part as a whole, it may indicate that the copper plate might be a reused one.(Originally a part of an AD plaque for Tao wine)
The existence of simplified character seems to be
an evidence that the reused copper plate itself is much more younger than the indicated reign name. In addition, the inscription texts in the past were written from right to left and not from left to right.
Simply put, it's a fake.
