Hi,
I don´t know this serie so I would like your opionion if this is genuine or not.

The weak areas on the obverse and funny looking lip made me wonder. Did a quick googleling on varieties but wasn't able to identify it.

Looks like it suffers from some environmental damage. Whether it's genuine, or not, I can't tell for sure from these pictures. My gut tells me it is probably the real deal.

The weight is about 3.12 g and the diameter is 19 mm.

My opinion was real without the weight and diameter looks like it was possibly dug up at some point in time.

Thank you för your comments. Gradewise, is it F- or VF- details?

I would say VF-30 details . Let a IHC expert check out that last 6 of the date . Looks different than the first 6 .

It looks real to me. I'd grade it vf-30 details as well. And I agree, T-BOP, something's up with those "6s" not matching.
