Size and Weight: This is a five piastres, weighs ~7 grams and is ~26 mm in diameter.
References: It is KM #366.
Condition: I would grade this coin as a nice about uncirculated or better with all the details being very well preserved and retaining some of its original mint luster with some spotty toning. The coin is much better than the scan shows and is much more lustrous than the scan suggest. It does have minor scratches, bag marks, nicks with minimum wear to design, commensurate with its age and circulated status. The coin is very pleasing and looks great. Please see photo for additional condition information.
