I will go out on a limb and say it almost looks too good.

Maybe you guys have made me paranoid, but if I look at other deniers from this mint, the Ms on this coin are different. Specifically, the angled center members meet the upright members at their apex (or very close to it), and not well below it, as on the coin linked by Bob, and also these:

Maybe just a different engraver, and it's not a big deal?

- the letters look far too thin to me. Thought of that immediately after I saw the OP.

I would actually point at the A as obviously different - on the OP's coin, the outer strokes and the connecting stroke are of comparable thickness (the connecting line maybe slightly thinner), while all four of the linked examples have a very thin connecting line between very thick outer strokes.

Yes, I thought that too, @j1m. The last link in my post has thinner lettering than the others, but the style of A and M are like the other links, and not the OP coin.

I am not sure if there is an expert on these coins close to you @vstefanyuk. Certainly someone at Jean Elsen et Fils in Brussels could tell you.
