  1. Ok cheers. I did think something wasn't quite right with the rim, it looks less substantial than on other examples and the teeth aren't as well defined, I thought this may have contributed towards the lack of weight. I will definitely try my luck and get in contact with the seller who's still active, thanks for your help.
  2. Ok, thanks for the reply. It's not worn, here's some photos of it anyway. I'm not sure what grade it is, would it be VF? It's 22mm in diameter which is the correct diameter.
  3. I have a 2 escudos gold doubloon that I purchased from a very reputable seller on eBay some years ago. For whatever reason I never thought to weigh it at the time as I trusted that it was legit. Having just purchased some accurate scales, and remembering this coin I bought back in 2011, I weighed it and it is coming up light, 6.27g instead of what should be 6.77g. Does this mean it's definitely a fake or did they vary a lot by weight, half a gram seems an awful lot though for a small coin.
