I found this while scrolling the bay. I'm 99% sure this isn't legit, but as I'm no expert in copper I wanted to differ to you all

Early copper isn't my area either, that aside, as a general statement, if it were indeed double struck, why is there no signs of a double struck date and LIBERTY? I'm saying fake as well.

I think it's been tooled.

I lean with the tooled crowd as well. The eyes don't seem to match, and they should be the exact same. As mentioned above, there should be doubling on everything too, not just some features.
My hoard of '82s is up to 199! 218 BC x 1, 118 BC x 3, 18 BC x 1, 82 x 1, 182 x 1, 282 x 2, 582 x 2, 682 x 1, 782 x 2, 882 x 1, 982 x 4, 1082 x 1 1182 x 8, 1282 x 2, 1382 x 1, 1482 x 5, 1582 x 13, 1682 x 14, 1782 x 55, 1882 x 49, 1982 x 32

Agree with these thoughts. Plus, why would the upper part of one down-sloping neck line be missing even though the eyes and mouths are so sharp directly above? And neither "nose" looks quite right. And the reverse is normal? Can't be.

I suspect it is real. The die pairing is correct and the doubling is there on LIBERTY and the date as well. I don't see doubling on the reverse so it looks like it may have bee struck twice withthe coin remaining in the rev die and the obv die being loose and shifting between strikes.
