Definitely - the lowest star is too close to the bust
And the real easy one is where the leaf is to the first A in America

I just sent the seller an email....I'll update if he responds....

The seller sent me a pretty nasty message. He claims that there are multiple ones on e-bay that look identical to his (which there is not),how since there were 50 people watching and multiple bidders on the item and only 2 complaints about the coin - that majority wins out. That along with a few choice R-rated words about me and that I don't know anything.
Then he sent me a second message that asked if I ever heard of a misstrike or a die break.
I did file a complaint to e-bay about the item being fake, but I'm sure that will be ignored.
It is people like this that are the biggest threats to this hobby and to getting new people interested

Looks like the coin was removed by eBay, no longer viewable, good job reporting it!

It sold for about $380. It was still up for about 6 days after the auction ended. Not sure if the person paid for it or not.
