Pulled this today from a coin collection that was given to me. Any chance it's a real reale?
Size is spot on, Non magnetic and it rings up silver on the metal detector. Weight is 27.7 and it sounds like silver when in a pile. I did not want to test the metal JIC...
Any info would be awesome as my research found that this coin has been faked.
Thanks all.

Looks a bit off to me also!
Mine was buried in mud and water and looks crisper than yours, what does the edge look like?

Hey all sorry for the late reply. I was called into work on nights and I'm at a dog show in Maryland this weekend. I read that the spanish were very strict with the weight of the coins so the almost gram extra killed my excitment. Sorry was to busy to post again. Here is a edge shot. Yep it has a seem. No were close to being as crisp or nice as the others posted here.Thanks for all the help. Loos like my mother in laws coin collection is not to great. Thanks again.

In my experience few circulated coins of this type survive without chop marks or scratching or bite marks used by people to authenticate them as being true silver. Probably the most forged coin in history along with the Mexican peso.
