Rare 5 lire 1873 - too light, probably fake

Recommended Posts

I bought this coin last year, online. All seemed ok until I noticed it has a rare mint mark - the Rome mint version.

But now that I weighted - the coin is about 23 grams... and the edge letters are very shallow. Suppose it is fake.

What do you coinpeople say?

I would like to believe that, but 2 grams is way too much. If this was a 1648 thaler, sure, no problem... Will hang on to it and compare it with other 5 lire from that period at the next coin show.
