Hello

I don't find any post about the Hidalgo del Parral coinage
I got here a 2 Centavos 1913 KM-607
Diameter 25 mm weight 7.26 g

I'd like to have your opinion about my coin because weight should be 6.85 g according to Krause

I think you are right to be suspicious, even when this is an emergency issue. There is a coin of this type on Numista. Weight is not given, but design looks the same.

Hello
I found another coin of the same type for sold here http://www.britalycoins.co.uk/world-coins/2975/mexico-chihuahua-hidalgo-del-parral-2-centavos-1913.html
The weight is 7.15 g so there is a third possibility for the same coin (I don't see any difference in the design of the 3 coins)
We may consider that some variations does exist in weight for that coin.
It would be useful to weight other coins of this type

Yes, it does look like the same die was used for all three.
