My suspicions were correct. Confirmed elsewhere with a few sources that this is 100% fake. Be diligent and go with your gut. 

It is initially very exciting when you see a coin like this, depending on where you see it you may or may not have time to think, research and react.

Having mad a couple of mistakes, I think the key thing is to give yourself time to consider if it really is what it purports to be. The context of where the coin is can help but can also mislead, so trust your gut.

I purchased a USD2.50 Indian head that I and the seller thought was probably a fake (the sellers father had worked in the Middle East in the 1970’s and 80’s). The price took that into account and it turned out to be a superb coin and genuine.

Good luck and trust your gut
