*** Edited by Staff to Add Year / Mintmark / Denomination to Title. Titles are Important! ***

I recently saw this coin online, yet something about it threw me off. The photos were bad, but the coin just did not look right. The fact that this is a semi-key date (264,000 minted), did nothing to ease my suspicions. But, I am no coin expert, and I would love to hear you guys's opinions on this coin. These were the only photos I could find of it:



Note: if you think it is real, could you leave an approximate value of the coin as well?

It's authentic, just damaged.

The counter stamped arrow on the obverse really hurts the collectibility of the coin.

Just worth a few dollars in my opinion.

With the size of the photos I can't comment on authenticity without a clear view of the mintmark. Looks to be G-06 Details, Countermarked. I would definitely steer clear of this coin and seek a problem-free example, preferably slabbed given the date.
