Ducaton, could this be real?

    This coin was sold yesterday as a "contemporary forgery" of a Dutch Ducaton, partly because it weighed 31.04 g instead of the official 32.7 g. But now I note it is not properly Dutch, but from the Dutch East India Company, and the standard catalog doesn't even list the weight for these, just says "silver". Now this particular coin is not shown in the standard catalog, but that doesn't mean it's a fake. Legend:MON FOED BELG PRO ZEEL IN USUM SOCIET IND ORIENT and what looks like a Zeeland coat of arms. I'm kicking myself for not looking closer and bidding on this--it went for 20 euros. View attachment 322778
