    Well it was drilled which is common practice back then. That may also account for the lower weight. Take it to a coin dealer and have them test the silver content.

    Contemporary Counterfeit most likely. Excellent recovery.

    Almost certainly a pewter counterfeit and it’s a fantastic find! Probably the earliest “silver” US counterfeit I’ve seen posted.
