Egregiously Deceptive Stock Photos... I imagine the buyer won't be so pleased
I saw this coin in an eBay search and opened up the listing. The coin looked great for a 53--perhaps too great--and I wondered if there were any larger photos instead of just the slab shots. When I noticed the slab photo has a generic sample label, I looked some more and found "The coin pictured is only a representation of the coin you will receive, not the exact coin" among the various bullets in the description. So I poked around some more. Their stock photo for an NGC AU53 is a PCGS MS66+ from CoinFacts. I don't like stock photos in general (outside of perhaps moderns available in bulk), but I'm not sure I've ever seen one this bad. I'll just go out on a limb and say the coin the buyer receives will be a tad inferior to the one they see in the listing.
