Unfortunately this coin without a doubt is a counterfeit.
I've only been collecting for a couple years (2017). Favorite Coin's are Standing Liberty quarters, Working on my type set: "knowledge is power" -Thomas Jefferson | Coffee, Corvettes, Coins & the CCF what could be better?

It's a terrible fake - run away from any possible purchase.

Looks to be the "vampire" counterfeit - two vertical bite marks on the neck.

Same obverse @kbbpll but a nonsense reverse; this "family" is based on the Off-center 1795, the only date with this obverse...




I also wrote a Coin Week article on these fakes!

Yes, different position of the leaves on the reverse than the 1796 fake in your article. Full article here: https://coinweek.com/counterfeits/s...ust-dollars/
