This coin is on EBay. Looks suspect to me.

1. Check out the queens bun of braids at the very back of her head. There is no detail where there should be braids there's more like a blob of nothing. This isn't wear.
2. Check out the 3. Looks too straight in the curves where it should be rounder. The tips of the ends don't look right either.
3. Overall the wear on the Obverse looks weird to me. There's still a lot of detail in the queens hair where it should be more worn.
4. The space between her eyes at the bridge of her nose, leading to the eyebrow. Is that off too?

What do you all think?

I'm not sure, but it doesn't seem to be a coin worth faking.

Very natural-looking to my eye.

I've seen NL 5 cent pieces that were fake that weren't worth making fakes of. Like a 1941 five cent in VF.

I could be wrong, but I've not seen wear as I described in 1) above.

Looks OK to me, and I am suspicious of every coin.
