See that make sense the scratch under chin makes it fake thanks
It's kind of hard to understand to someone who hasn't studied coins, but most of the time a coin either looks genuine or fake. Upon initial glance you immediately know if it looks fake or real, because you have looked at thousands or tens of thousands. Color, strike, details, style, surfaces, etc all go into that initial thought but much of it is kind of subconscious. That's why some people will say it looks fake or real initially and they are correct 95%+ of the time, even though at that point they don't exactly know consciously why.
Then after the initial view, you look for all the other small details to confirm or disprove your initial impression. It's an odd skill.
