another counterfeit 1804 Bust dollar

Seller admits that its a counterfeit. has the typical cast/poured look to it. Poor details and the strike around the rims are deformed.
Could we get some reports and can somebody post a pic for future reference and education?

    I am not going to report it, as I do not know the rules or laws on selling counterfeits in Australia. Discloser may be good enough.

    Listing pulled, Thanks for the picture though....The listing did call it a token...no idea if there was further information in the description. Cheers, RickO

    These aren't even worth calling out. There are so many of these souvenir coins. They've been sold in Asia for 50 years and they aren't even designed to fool anyone.

    It’s the new “tilted 4 variety.” Haven’t you read about? ;)
