Coin and Paper Money Collecting/1913 French Indo China 20 Centimes

I have a 1913 French Indo China 20 centimes Silver Coin. On the reverse it is marked titre 0.68 poids 5 gram 4. I also see many others like this but I was told that they should read titre 0.835 and not 0.68. Because I see others marked the same as mine before 1913 did they mark some of these 0.68 by mistake or is this a counterfeit?

Hi Paul,

I can give you some information based on the photo of the back of this coin. If you can send me a photo of the front I can confirm on change my opinion on this coin. From what I see this is not an authentic coin. I will attach a photo of an authentic 1913 20 centimes coin from French Indo China (Vietnam).
