    Yes, it looks very original!
    Weight: Around 19.09 gr, my scale is showing this; not quite sure.
    Diameter: 38 mm
    Magnetic (not very strong)
    The date is doubled and in (UNITED STATES OF AMERICA); UN and CA are doubled too.
    And there is a (let say) reflection of 04 from 1804 in reverse.
    Could it be a variety or fake?

    Funny thing, I actually tested one of these from Vietnam for a friend at work . I used my Metal detector and the results indicated "JUNK" . True story....

    BTW, gr is grains, if you want grams, the abbreviation is just g

    Here is an example with a "1799" date on it. It's still junk.

    so many issues with this one, not least being the reeded edge.

    Yes, I have a picture of that “1804” somewhere, but I could not locate it.
