I have had this coin for a while and would like opinions on whether it's authentic or not.

Thanks!

Try to get this way more in focus, and take your photos a little farther away. The picture is too unclear to help with your question. You can always zoom in the image optimizer.

Just curious why this coin would be anything but authentic?

I purchased it for an extremely low price, and the seller was not sure if it was authentic. I was 99% sure it was real but just wanted to check.

Did you buy this in NC? It looks just like one I sold to a dealer at a show there.

It is always worth asking for an opinion when you are not 100%, even if it is up to 99%.

No, I purchased this one on eBay.
