Very questionable, desperate collectors fall for it ? It looks to me like a genuine coin, possible cleaned or the photo is overexposed and appears too light. What seems wrong about it to you ?

Desperate collectors are not necessarily stupid collectors.
If all the inaccurate coin listings were pulled from eBay there wouldn't be much left.
All private listings are suspicious IMO.
"Dipping" is not considered cleaning...

I didn't know there was a 1948 MapleLeaf 50c coin?,. Apart from that it looks O.K for a 1948. 50c to me.

Looks legit to me also.
That is the Narrow Date Variety.
Not sure where the Maple Leaf is though.

Agreed with Jim, this is Narrow Date variety for sure.

As for the maple leaf, only 1947 year issue had a maple leaf.

Good on you for reading the title carefully!

EDIT:

Looks like the seller acknowledged his mistake. Scroll down to bottom of the page and you will see. Kudos to the community for pointing this out and to the seller.
