What is the correct weight for the 50 cents 1927H Rajah Charles Vyner Brooke Silver coin?

Recently, a fellow collector brought along a 50 cents 1927H Rajah Charles Vyner Brooke Silver coin to me. He was puzzled/undecided whether his coin is a forgery as this coin ( below pictures) weighed only 10.1 gram compared to  13.57gram in the latest catalogue of KN Boon.

50 cents 1927H Sarawak coin weighing 10.1 grams

50 cents 1927H Rajah Charles Vyner Brooke Sarawak coin weighing 10.1 grams

After perusing through internet searches, other coin grading sites like NGC,etc and going to Krause Catalogue it was revealed that the weight should be 10.1 gram instead of 13.57 gram.

So just before you write off your coin as forgery or reproduction, do double- checked with all other sources!!!
