Found this in an old jewelry box. I have looked it up, all others I have found showed they were made of bronze and weighing 2.0 grams. This one weigh 2.1 grams. The way the 20 looks it might have been covered with silver or the die is chipped. If anyone can help, thanks

It looks as if it's been silver-plated and pierced for a charm bracelet. The silver plating might account for the slight difference in weight. I quite often see small, low-value European coins that have been silvered and pierced like this in dealers' junk boxes.
