Believe it or not this appears to be either an OLD fake, or if real then the coin the fakes were modeled from. I haven't seen one of these for a LONG time. Back in the early 70's the 1799 dollar was a commonly faked coin. They were good fakes but the one obvious flaw in them was found on the middle of the upright of the R in LIBERTY where the loop of the R joins the upright. There is a nice rectangular hole in the upright at that point. It is the same size and shape as that dark spot on the image in the OP.
