1918 Walking liberty half Question?

Would like y'alls help. After tax and shipping this will cost me $23.45. Should I buy or pass?? Thanks.

    If it's too good to be true, it isn't true.

    I agree with Walkerguy21D; this can't be a bona fide offer of a genuine coin in that condition (and that one looks very odd to my untrained eye).

    I hope you know that this is a terrible, modern counterfeit.
