Seller said "100% Orginal but was cleaned"

@seap, I don't like the looks of that black metal underneath the copper. What is the weight of this piece?

I'm no expert on Large Cents, but I don't like the look of this one from the coloration to the brush/cleaning strokes.

Also, the denticles and some of the design features don't look quite right.

Yeah, it has a plated or even painted look to it. Whatever the skin, it is wearing off.

Looks genuine.
Too bad about the damage. It would always grade as a Details coin.

EDIT: I wouldn't be surprised if it is counterfeit. The strike itself is a red flag to me. If the seller can lie about its originality, then he can for sure lie about its authenticity.

Doesn't look right to me. I think it is likely a fake.

@seap, the consensus seems to be either fake or at the very least damaged. Hopefully the seller has a good return policy.

Thank you all for every comments.
I contacted the seller and he accepted the refund.
but, I have to make sure it's not authentic.
