Hi everyone. This Walk Liberty is 9.13 grams and it is supposed to be
12.5 Grams. There are some abnormalities (raised impressions) in different areas. Any thoughts are appreciated. Thank you.

Is it really silver? It maybe a counterfeit. There looks like a granular look appearing on the devices on the date area image. If it is silver, you might have it tested? It might be a sand cast coin?

Looks like a counterfeit to me. To start, the date and IGWT- that's not wear.

If an actual fake, worth well more than the real thing.

It sounds like all the silver that I've ever heard. The weight is way off so it probably is counterfeit.

The wear pattern suggests to me that the alloy is too soft to be .900 silver; it's just too banged up and badly dented on the edge.

Looks like a circulating counterfeit to me. These are generally worth more than the real deal in comparable condition to the specialized collector.
