    A “see through” label.

    Looks like it was imaged on a scanner, so possible the light could shine through?

    Looks authentic to me. Looks like the "1" lines up over the dentil. Wish there was more of a close up, though.

    I don't think the problem is that it is a fake coin, the problem is it was just sold on Ebay a few weeks ago for over $2,000 to a buyer who didn't join Ebay last night.

    That is a good point. And what an investigative crowd. I was looking for a particular pick up point on the obverse, more than the label. A small dot. But the crowd's (members) already made a bigger point !

    There's plenty of clues.......

    Low feedback seller.

    Expensive coin.

    But the real tip-off is the seller's picture which is an obvious 'copy and paste'.

    Beware these pictures that do not completely fill the Ebay frame.

    I was like how in the heck is that fake?! That is a nice looking coin for the grade. Wish I had seen the real one when it was offered.
