If the weight is under, it may have been acid dipped. Spendable coin.

Thanks for the reply. It is a bit light at 11.1. This might be a dumb question but why would it have been acid dipped?

Someone was bored. They try to alter coins to make someone think it is a mint error and get more money for it. We seen this many times before. Just a spender.

Interesting. My have been exposed to a heat source--possibly a hobby-grade butane torch--then dipped in acid to 'clean it up' some. Oh the things coins endure.

I think I see a seam on the edge shot. Weight?
