I don't know this series well enough to give a definitive answer but this doesn't look like a struck coin. Ill check back and hopefully I'm full of beans.

Your coin ( I think it is an 1885 HO ) is looking pretty good to me. It appears everything is right size and shape when I compare it to mine which is a different date but same type. Fakes tend to slip up someplace and change details. Make lettering larger or smaller. As best I can tell, your image would overlay on mine and look right.

Heck, I just looked at the mint marks of these things, I think that I was wrong stating mine is an S and yours was too.
( So I edited my previous post ) There is an extensive list of mintmarks so I don't know my stuff there.
It's possible mine is from Mexico City and yours might be from Hermosillo KM#377.9
Take a gander at this link.

Your weight looks right for the coin. You may have a scarce mint coin there with a much lower mintage than usual. Best of luck.
