If it looks bent, then yes.
I am not an expert on this kind of stuff, but I think the roller press technology often resulted in coins with a slight curvature. I have quite a few (solidus from Baltic region, for example).
Beautiful coin, by the way!

Thanks @tdziemia. I had no idea. It is a nice coin. I was ready to break it out and put a thumb on

I've picked up some Silesia coins from the late 1600s to fill in gaps in my Poland OFEY for years when no Polish coins were minted. Here's a picture of the curvature on a 6 kreuzer coin from Wurttemburg-Oels around the same time. I measure about 1.5 mm on a 25 mm coin. I think it's my most extreme example.
