What do you think, is it real or fake? Look at ALL pictures but read the description AFTER you decide!

The biggest indicator being the stars. They are thicker and diamond shaped on an original. There's a sucker born everyday, that money for a seller with zero feedback?

That reverse is atrocious. Everything about that eagle is wrong, neck feathers are a joke!

Standard comment by me.
For that price it should be slabbed.
Oh, and the seller has (0) feedback.
Describe it as if there were no picture.

Orientalia. Bring on the bidding war!

The conditions for a return seem pretty extreme.

They match examples on the no-no site that cost $5 or less.

Seller got very belligerent and profane when informed that it's a $2.50 counterfeit. As expected, I guess. FYI.

Lots of tells here, but to me the best is the shape of the tops of the 5s in the date. Muddler's example illustrates this very well.

I had a very nice e-mail exchange with him, and he could not have been more polite.
