I was given a mountain of pictures of random coins in this guy's collection he got from his dad and inside there was this coin. I had to obviously sit here and zoom in and severely crop pictures. I don't want to tip my hat off about the coin nor do I want to get his hopes up as the entire collection would probably need to be bought to do a deal.

Very limiting but from what you can see does it look "right"?

Please show us the reverse without the flashback - color is important.

There were 3 reverses used on the 71cc and the mint mark appears correct for one of the dies. The last 1 in the date has a strange base, The wear appears normal. If I was going to make a deal to buy this rare coin, it would be contingent on being graded genuine by TPG.

I'd still like to start with large, full-size pics of each side that show the true color of this coin. We need to determine if this is genuine and then a grade as well.

My first impression is that it is genuine.

It does appear genuine to the pictures however the color is important for us to officially determine its authenticity

If these are the only pictures you have available, I don't see any red flags. But it sounds like a gamble if you can't inspect it properly.

Without two full-size pics of both sides, in exactly the same color, this coin cannot be evaluated properly.

I agree with better pictures needed but what I can see it matches either WB-1 or WB-3 die marriage. There is actually 5 different reverses for the 1871 CC half dollar and a total of 7 different die marriages. I would agree that it does look authentic but better pictures to confirm.
