Hello all,

I have little reason to doubt the authenticity of this coin, but confirmation feels good. It is non magnetic, right diameter, and weighs 11.69/11.7 ... A little over, but pings right. The strike isn't great, but I haven't seen too many that are well struck... Thoughts?

NGC World Coin Values image gives a good idea of how well struck these can be.
Based on those obv and rev pictures, it would be a bit unfair to judge the condition of your coin from your on screen pictures.

Not to worry, you may compare your coin with those pictures, to get a fair and accurate grading for yourself.

Use 10x magnification under good lighting conditions, just as the Third Part slab Graders would do.

@sel... I know. That's what I did... I just like showing finds to the community to confirm or contrast my conclusions. Is this a subtle way to say I shouldn't? The only people I interact with about coins is on this forum.... I don't think there's another example of this coin on the forum, so someone way find the discussion useful; I have found many previous threads useful. Sorry if I broke some convention or norm.

@Roma2021, I think that it is perfectly OK to ask for a second opinion.

Thanks @oriole. I find, on average, about 10-12 coins a week... Nearly all I can verify, but this isn't one I've handled before. The more I investigate the more I think it's an authentic specimen.
