Japan, Ryukyu Islands: ½ Shu ND (JDNA2008-134.2, KM-C115)

This coin was issued by the Shimazu-clan between 1862-1863.  Ryukyu Islands is also known as Okinawa.  It was conquered by the Shimazu clan around the 1600s and hence was subjected to taxation up until the 1870s.

Hello,

please the exact weight and the diameter writes in addition.
Do you see on the edge of the coin a counterstamp?
If so - at which place?

Greetings
