Nice coin. For value you can see prices realized at CNG. Be sure, after the first page, to then click on "eAuctions" for 31 more results, then "Printed Auctions" for three more. Be on the lookout for coins in about the same general condition as yours.

I think most likely it is a fake I found the die match in fake reports:

link removed, no image available.

AlRashid is right, this is a dangerous fake - absolutely nothing I can see about the coin to tip you off, but this exact fake does come up on occasion.

another suspicious factor is weight 13.2 is a bit low thesw coins usually are 13.8 or more mostly plus 14 gram. @Coinzguy can you please upload some photo of the edges of coin? I like to see if there is any issues on edge.
