    Yes it is a 2 Dram weight, I have seen them listed as from the 1700's and in the 1800's. I have one also, but yours is in much better shape!

    "The mantra has always been don't clean a (copper) coin or it will lose value.
    For undug coins this is true. For dug coins this is untrue.
    The value will increase with judicious cleaning."

    An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.
