The numista page states: "Theoretical weight is 15 g but actually measured weight on a proof coin is 13.6 g, which actually corresponds to the 0.24 oz of silver content." https://en.numista.com/catalogue/pieces44133.html

However my coin [also a proof] is 15.03g. Does anybody else have this coin [either in proof or non proof, please state] so we can verify the weight.

All the 3 Mark coins of that time should way 15g I can't think why a proof should be any different when usig the same planchets just with higher die pressure und polished dies.
Most likely the person weighting had a fake.

I would imagine the same. However given it is apuking with the original comment and coin, I thought it worthy of further investigation.

I think mine was 15g, but Im not sure anymore as I had sold the coin a long time ago. Comment must have been added by someone else

@CassTaylor has one.
She's been parading it lately, and I bet this will be an excellent opportunity for it to grace this thread, along with a weight of it!
I collect anything: If it's Italian or Italian states i collect it even more!

​I do (a non proof), just not the apparatus to weight it with. So I'm afraid I can't be of assistance here. :(
