picked this up for a few bucks, not really knowing what it was.   but after closer examination,  I am having doubts on this coin
It seem to be a modern copy of a coin of Conrad II   1300 AD ish
weight 2.1 grams ( 0.6 grams lighter that coins listed )  20 mm    Silver in color ( but    humm ?? )  edge is also almost perfectly round
anyone help me out on this ?
