Just wondering what your thoughts are. I would never purchase a non certified key date, but I am always looking to see as many examples as I can.

The VDB looks weird to me. Maybe just the exposure...

Thanks.

It almost looks like the VDB is painted onto the coin.

Defiantly does not look anything like my V.D.B on mine. mine looks straight not slanted and not a gold color like that more of a copper color. The dot between the V and D is also way bigger on that one than mine.

Fake -
'S' mint mark is not in the correct location.
It does not match any of the four known locations

Agree with the above. The "S" has more definition then the rest of the coin. Bad fake.

Maybe someone else has the software and the time to overlay it with position #4 and see how well it fits.

IMO, this coin is legit. Diagnostically, it appears to fit well with pic #4. The coin is kind of banged up. This would result in some post mint damage. I think that's what happened to the upper part of the mm. The V.D.B. does appear to be weak, but also looks genuine.
He also has a 7-day return policy which is always good.

But, there have been altered keys that have fooled even the most experienced numismatists. My advice is if your going to buy this coin, buy it already slabbed by a reputable TPG.

Position looks good for #4, but the shape of the MM seems off. Also the center crossbar of the B appears to go straight across. It should slant upwards.

I agree with "fake". The "S" appears questionable as does the vdb. The apparent wear on the vdb doesn't work with the apparent wear on the rest of the coin and the vdb is typically somewhat hidden from normal wear and tear as a result of positioning. Thus, it should be more apparent. Also, you'd have to see the "B" up closer, but the center bar of the B should slant upwards slightly from left to right to be legitimate. The buyer of this coin should purchase it contingent upon getting it in either an NGC, PCGS, or ANACS slab. That's the only way I would do it.
