I have an 1882 Vicky shilling where some silver has flaked off but is still silver underneath, poor quality but seems legit. Yours looks quite suspect though. :Thinking:

What does it weigh? Following Allectus I’d suggest ~ 4.2g

My real ones weigh 5.24 - 5.54g, though a slightly suspect one is 5.0g.
