1870 50 Sen piece test as silver but is only 10 grams

2 posts in this topic

My question is it possible that an 1870 50 Sen coin could weigh only 10 grams and not be counterfeit? I tested it's density and found it is indeed made of silver. It arrived unexpectedly in a suspicious slab from a company in China called "CCGA" which I have never heard of. The coin looks authentic to me but I can not find any example of an 1870 50 Sen coin that weighs only 10 grams so I tend to think it is fake. I would like to add that the coin does not look worn at all so the weight difference is not caused by wear.
