Weighs 24-25 grams. My grandfather owned it, so its been in the family for 75-80 years. Is it real of fake?

I'm sitting on the fence on this one because of the wear, it is hard to see details.
If you are not sure if it is genuine, why did you post it on eBay?

I was on the fence. I put ice on it and it melted super fast. Magnets wont stick to it. ITs about the right weight. Short of taking it a dealer, I dont know what else to do.

The surface seems strange. Has it been coated with lacquer?

It should weigh 27 grams. This is significantly underweight: a serious red flag in my opinion.

I dont like that ridge on the edge of the coin, can you check for signs of a cast for us, that ridge just looks off.

I've learned that the windows in the castles should be fairly crisp.
