I see no problem with this coin.  It is a very close match for Gorny 28.2.01 or 28.2.02.

The 01 is the closest calligraphic match, but has slightly narrower rims and is 30 mm dia. The 02 is better match for size (29 mm) and rim width but not as exact for calligraphy.  With the large volume of this common coinage cast the fact it fits between 01 and 02 is no concern.

All large Northern Song coins are considered value-2.  If I recall correctly some may have been originally intended as value-5 or value-3 but in any such cases they were rapidly de-valued to value-2 - like, within a year or so of first issues - hence they are known as value-2 today.

It is not rare.  Value-2 N Song coins are quite common but generally sell for a couple times what a value-1 sells for.
