I acquired this coin in a yard sale last year but,I don't know what to look at in order to tell if it's fake or not. I'm not a coin collector in any sense of the word. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

I'm no sure how to do that.I originally posted larger pictures but, couldn't post them because the files were too large I guess.

It's counterfeit. The number 5 on the reverse is wrong for that date. Is it magnetic?

No, not magnetic at all.

Unfortunately, still a fake. Here's a comparison of the "50 C" on your coin with a genuine 1817 bust half on the bottom.

Thank you so much for all the help! @zuri. I definitely agree with you now that you pointed out the "5" and their massive differences. I wish we still had a coin shop in my town, could have been a quicker solution but, without one I'm glad I found the forum before I tried to sell it to someone just to be seen as a thief.
