The lion looks like most of the detail is worn off. F would be my grade.

My thought would be a VF. The lion is normally weakly struck on these. The lettering looks pretty good so I think the grader would leave it as a VF.

Interesting piece, I didn't know the Paraguayan 1889 Pesos circulated at all. These are commonly available in mint state so usually the question is "is it a ms-62 or a 63?"  What you could have is a pocket piece: someone got one years ago and carried it for a while.  It does look like a VF tho.

Thanks for the helping. I bought it like genuine and paid like one with VF grade. The size is correct 37.5 mm and equal the weight 24.4 g, a very little less I think about the wear. Do You think this one is authentic? Is normal this wear? Thanks again!

It is difficult to tell from photos but everything looks right about it. Every one I have seen has been weakly struck.
