While not offering an opinion, I add a blow up of the letters which might help others.

I'm seeing what may be casting bubbles. I can't confidently offer an opinion, but it's worrying.

I don't lie the look of the lettering and the surface looks porous. Can you provide a picture of the edge of the coin?

Unfortunately I can't take more photos as it is not my coin, but was considering buying. Thank you for your replies. I thought it might be fake for the reasons you've mentioned, though I must confess in terms of style it's pretty good.

This one is difficult to tell. The style does look good and a porous surface does not always mean it is fake. The planchettes themselves are occasionally crude and porous and will have rough or porous surfaces after being struck. This is more often seen in some earlier military mint issues but sometimes in official imperial issues as well.

My gut says it is real. I would like to see the edge though.

Ok, I will buy it and post pictures of the edge once I receive it. I will trust your gut since risking 80 USD isn't that big of a deal. Thank you.

Oh great, now it will be my fault. :) LOL. just kidding. Its kind of a coin toss on this one but yes 80 is not too much to risk I suppose. Is the seller reputable?

So I've added images of the edge. Could you please give me your opinion now? Thank you.
