Looks genuine to me and looks like it's been cleaned, too!

On the grading scale I'd say "very fine details - cleaned".

Looks genuine, I don't see any obvious issues. But wait, aren't you supposed to have expertise on fakes? After all, you just won my counterfeit contest!

I'll say high VF details (cleaned), although perhaps it's just an over-exposed image.

@zurie I just started learning about fakes for your contest. I ended up really enjoying myself and have started digging into the subject deeper. I currently only own two coins - the one from your contest will be my third. Thanks again for the inspiration.

I agree with everyone above! Looks genuine, however, cleaned.

Looks OK if a bit weird. Can you weigh it? If the composition is gold it's VERY likely genuine. Should be 16.718 grams.

Negative - can't weigh it and don't want to ask owner to weigh it. Potential customer is friend. I advised him to buy something higher quality and slabbed.
