So here is another coin I am considering in Rome. I have not held this coin in hand but may take a look this weekend...

The reverse just doesn't quite look right. Feathers appear cartoonish and the sun is lopsided. Small pic of obverse, but Liberty appears overly masculine (including face). I suspect it is a fake.

the bumpy fields made me think fake as well, but I've not seen enough of these to be sure

Thank you. I have some issues with the lettering... I know they tend toward bubbly on this coin but those look a bit too bubbly.

there are details that are just not matching up with an original 1907. positioning and size of some of the feathers. this could be angles or lighting. I would be suspect of this coin as well. it may be genuine but I would not pull the trigger but its something that if I did I would want return privilege's and have it authenticated by a 3rd party

one other think that bothers me is that there is a good amount of wear on this coin in the tail feathers but the breast is very light. doesn't make sense.

This one looks fake to me. Larger and sharper photos needed to confirm.
