Agree. It also lacks the "Shallow N" reverse that is characteristic of this date. How did you find this?

That date would be a red flag upon first glance. Surprisingly the rest of the coin looks fairly decent.

I've seen this reverse before. It was on a different date coin. Off the top of my head, I can't remember where I saw it. The circled markings were one of the diagnostics. Does anyone else remember where this one was mentioned?

I could see why someone put it in their album. It does look nice. Great fake though.
