Fake 1930 Poland 5 Zlotych?

Just making sure my assessment is correct. This is a fake 1930 Poland 5 Zlotych coin right? The pitted devices, weak rims, and raised lumps look suspect.

Do you all report these things to eBay? I have in the past, but never seen a response. I wonder if it does any good.

    It is not even a die struck coin but a rather clever cast fake - the colouring above and behind the angel is indicative of it being a cast and subsequently cleaned example of a fake coin.

    That's some serious pitting. Do the right thing. Peace Roy

    @tbishopric why bother? eBay is a lost cause. They have the means and rationale to police these things, yet they fail to. They have dismantled their counterfeit team. Their low-wage customer service is clueless and helpless.

    In other words, they could care less. Why should you?

    This seller has sold another copy of this coin back in December so it’s highly unlikely ebay will do anything and pull it. Now that I look at other coins sold by this seller, all appear to be copies.
