This is advertised as a large cent, although it is a half cent and does not look real to me. Opinions?

Not genuine. My guess is this came from China.

you can still report closed auctions and ebay will still delete them

may as well complain about the new policy while reporting them.

There are three or four styles of heads that appear on 1794 half cents. Therefore it is hard to characterize the date from one coin, but here is a high grade example for those who are not that familiar with the real thing.
