Fake 1794 half cent?

This is advertised as a large cent, although it is a half cent and does not look real to me. Opinions?

    Cast fake. Note the mole on her cheek next to her lips and the dimple NE of the A in Half on back.

    Not genuine. My guess is this came from China.

    How is this guy getting away with this?? Everyone please report.
  • MsMorrisineMsMorrisine Posts: 20,582 ✭✭✭✭
    you can still report closed auctions and ebay will still delete them

    may as well complain about the new policy while reporting them.

    There are three or four styles of heads that appear on 1794 half cents. Therefore it is hard to characterize the date from one coin, but here is a high grade example for those who are not that familiar with the real thing.

    His 1908-S Indian cent is problematic too.
    (There are still remnants of, "C O P Y" on the reverse...)
