This coin was successfully returned due to the good nature of the dealer I bought it from. No questions asked, if anything he was embarrassed about the whole situation.

Well that's good. Did he concur that it was a counterfeit?
Hi, my name is MikeF and I'm a degenerate coin collector. I also like adventure, big trucks, long walks on the beach and the Kansas City Chiefs.

He wasn't sure, so he said he would pass it on to an expert.

Perhaps, you should have let the dealer send it in for you. I see nothing on the coin that looks fake. The coin is not cast, the die break around the bottom of the reverse is LDS. Oh well, the experts here know more about it then me, I just collect the series.

The denticles are off.
The portrait is off.
The fields are porous.
There is a surface dip on the lower reverse.
There are four obvious issues with this piece, I believe it is almost certainly a fake. Perhaps you could enlighten us as to why you think it is not?

Leaning towards fake on this one. The overall appearance and wear patterns appear to be a bit off in my opinion. Quite deceptive, not the ordinary counterfeit.
