The seller listed it as: United states of america 1796 Liberty gold Coin.

Here is the link: https://www.ebay.com/itm/United-sta...363307172136

Ok now I know it is NOT gold, It looks like a 1796 half dime Draped Bust Small Eagle with nice toning

Am I correct?
Is it real or a fake? (if a fake, so what it only cost 5 bucks)

But if it's real, did I get a good deal?

only thing I can see is very small typed text on each side of the coin that says 'copy' but could the seller be just adding his own type of watermark on it?


Please, your thoughts are welcome here.

Yup. It's a copy. Seller's other coin listings indicate copy as well. If you're comfortable obtaining copies of US coins (NOT the real thing), go for it.

80/20 against you even getting it, its a brand new seller in Sri Lanka.

I have no idea why you would think someone would watermark it with "copy" when they're selling a real one.
