edit- listing has been nuked

Evidently, no one on the world forum can be bothered to report the listing so I will
post here.

I am by no means the expert on world gold but I saw this posted on someones instagram story and figured I'd lend a hand in getting it removed. Slab looks pretty good at first pass, but when you pull up the cert it says "possible counterfeit". Looking at the coin, the legend lettering looks mushy and has discrepancies between the coin on the cert page, assuming die transfer counterfeit. Also the orientation of the reverse is shifted, and the Ebay coin doesnt appear to exhibit the same amount of contrast. Ebay seller with 0 feedback from Poland :#.

    Both the holder and the tag look counterfeit to me. The clear edges on the holder and the font on the label appear to be obvious tells at first glance IMO.

    I tried reporting it and eBay responded back to me:

    _Thanks again for reporting the listing(s) you found.

    What happened:
    We looked into your report and didn’t find the listing to be in violation of our policy. This determination was made using automation or artificial intelligence_.

    Me thinks artificial intelligence is an oxymoron in this case
