That is not a coin weight. It is an apothecary's weight-used for weighing drugs. They are often found mixed with coins.

There are certainly collectors of this genre and I have a few myself.

It is in rough shape for this type of item, but I have no idea if this manufacturer is considered common or not.

Yes is an apothecary's weight, the 3fs The "fs" stands for 'fluid dram, traditional system of weight in the British Isles used for the measuring and dispensing of pharmaceutical items and based on the grain. manufactured in the town of Birmingham England. reverse half drachm Single weights are common and generally sell for a couple of dollars at most complete sets are when the price goes up. I too find them often in the bulk bags I buy. At one time in Greece they were used both as weights of measure and coins.
