If I come across an ebay offering that I think is an obvious fake, I'll report the item in hopes that a buyer won't get scammed. Sometimes ebay appears to act and the listing disappears and sometimes the listing continues.

Came across this offering,165541257631, a couple of weeks ago. They tend to pop up in my search because the fakes are usually offered below market.

I reported it but nothing happened. Seller changed the terms a bit and sold it with BIN.

Get this. Buyer who looks like an experienced buyer, who has over 2000 feedback, gives the seller a prompt 5 Star positive feedback.

It's clearly damaged and the images have poor color but what else do you see? To me it's a not an arm's length fake. That's not saying it's genuine, only that I don't see an obvious fake.

The lines in the field are more numerous on the genuine coin.

well that is certainly obvious. There is so much wrong with this - the head is rotated Counterclockwise in relation the the Lettering above it. the hair style is off. And the neckless and her blouse are way off too. The shape of the face is way off too. I won't even mention the color...
And this is just the obverse..

if you look at the 2 in 2015, it has a hit on it, you can see the silver colour underneath the plating.

Thank you nss-52! Nice illustration.

That is what I immediately noticed also. The field lines are much tighter, more numerous and have a 3D look to them on a real coin.
