Tom Mullally:
This appears to be silver or white metal, is that correct?  The types with SC on the reverse were struck in bronze.  This coin appears to be a modern cast fake, sorry to say.

I wasn't going to say anything, because I'm still learning how to ID suspicious coins, but I also question this coin.  When I checked on Wildwinds  I noticed what Tom said --  S-C across the fields was on bronze issues.  Also, notice the feature running all the way from each arm elbow down to the child below.  On a quick search online I do not see a RIC 719 TEMPOR FELIC reverse denarius with that feature.  Also, the obverse style just seems off, to me.

What is the diameter and weight of this coin ?

"cuz its not fake I am sure ."

How do you know this?

Imho it is a very obvious and bad fake.

To the SC, Denarii with SC on reverse actually exist for example for Sabina!
