I look at lots of images as well, (that is what I am doing in this thread, look and learn), and have a few specialist books on the manufacture of fake coins. Learning how they are made certainly helps.

Slider23, where are the design differences between my photos and yours? (I found such photos and compared with mine before writing here but didn't find obvious design differences, actually that's why I decided to ask here.)

There are plenty, but we'll give just one which is rather obvious to me: the flag. On the genuine, it's obvious that it's an actual flag, with the pattern of stars inside one recessed quadrant. On the fake, they're just stars, floating in space, with little or no evidence of any actual flag that the stars are supposed to be sitting on.

This 1872 pattern is like a proof with mirrors that will have a solid strike. SAP makes a good point about the details of the flag, and the flag issue is not going to be from a poor strike. When I looked at the OP counterfiet, the first thing I noticed was the lack of details on the denticles on the reverse. Counterfiets often have the basic design of the genuine example, so it can fool the unexperienced buyer. As noted by SAP, there are more design issues on the OP counterfiet.
