    I don’t have better images. I already know that will be one of the first comments.

    Now that that is covered, are there specific reverse diagnostics or are they based strictly off mint mark placement?

    Anywhere in the first post does it say I own it or acquired it?

    stick to the question and don’t make assumptions.

    My post says I don’t have better photos. I’m quite able to produce great images if I do them myself.

    To put a real answer on here:

    The S mint mark appears to be sort of lopsided. I don’t know if a real S that isn’t more or less straight-on.

    Fake. The N in UNITED is wrong and from the blurry photo it looks like the B in VDB is also wrong.

    If you don't have access to the coin so you can take better photos, why would you ask the question?

    I can't see the S or the VDB really well, but the rims are really poorly made, grainy; and LIBERTY looks very mushy.

    Right before you posted the pics, you did say, "Opinion time." So, that seems what you've gotten.

    As far as sticking to the question, I don't see that anyone has answered you yet. So, to answer your question "are there specific reverse diagnostics or are they based strictly off mint mark placement?", the answer is: yes, there are specific reverse diagnostics.

    Fake, red flags too numerous to list!

    And the S doesn't look remotely like an S, the rims are a joke, and on and on.... very crude fake.
