This coin (IMHO VF to low XF) weighs 26.555 grams/409.82 grains (-.175). Diameter is 37.88 mm (-.22 ). I think the differences are reasonable given the coin's wear. Under the scope, it looks legit, just worn. Crumbling around most of the reverse devices, but not to the level of a V1K. It 's like a cross between a V1J and V1K.
Also, that spear anomaly at the eagle's right shoulder is not incused, but raised on the outside edges as if there were a major gouge/cut of some kind in the die. It's perfectly straight, so as to what tool or mechanism made the mark is up in the air. Discuss...
Thanks in advance.....Andrew
