Obvious fake is obvious. Have you reported it?

It's funny that counterfeiters rarely seem to produce the weak N which is the first diagnostic that anybody ever looks at.

Edit: Before jumping the gun too much, proof 1877s had a strong N. It doesn't look like a circulated proof to me though.

I just took a look at a bunch of genuine 1877's that sold on Heritage the last few years, and the last 7 of the date on the eBay coin looks all wrong to me. I wouldn't touch this with a ten foot pole.

If you report something as fake on ebay do you have to prove it?
How does the reporting work?
I saw the link, I've just never actually reported anything.

The date looks all wrong to me also, take a look at a few 1877 Indians on Heritage or other sites.

One should not touch that with any pole.

Scubu, where are you?

I pulled this from his signature:

Report eBay Coin Auctions Here [Link fixed by Bryan1315 because it wasn't working]

I do not think you have to prove it, just report it.

This line alone would make me not bid. Real or not.

UGH!
"If by a "Liberal" they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people-their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights and their civil liberties-someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what they mean by a "Liberal", then I'm proud to say I'm a "Liberal."

The digits are too large, for starters. Then there's the clincher--that "bold N" reverse.

For future reference, here's this fake compared to a certified 1877.
