    Authenticity is very hard to decide over picture.

    Fake. 95% sure. I say that and not 100% because my main focus is $2 1/2 Indians, not $5, but it has the same look as the fake $2 1/2s.

    Just doesn't look right to me-details and background fields.

    Can you tell us where you acquired this coin?

    What is the giveaway? I have quite the “tribe” of Indian $5.00 and $2.50 pieces. I can usually sniff out a fake and this one isn’t setting off alarms in my brain. Profile and headdress seem correct to me. I’m not questioning judgment at all. I just want to know the signs because I can’t ever seem to pass these up when I see them.

    Edit.... To the OP’s question.... If authentic these typically bring $400.00-$450.00.

    Mushy details, especially in the lettering, etc. Also, the color/luster has the look of a fake to me. @ToughCOINS ?

    I agree, this coin looks questionable to me too. I hesitate to declare it fake from these images, but if it is returnable, I would return it.

    Τhank you all for your answers! I would never buy a coin I am not certain,
    this looked like a nice buy but I will return it.
    weight 8.34gr and diameter 21.9 think also that it doesn't match.

    I live in Greece, after the crisis lots of shops opened buying gold and silver from people how need cash, unfortunately many collectible coins ended melted.
    Sometimes some get rescued .....

    The date doesn't look right to me. Especially the "3".
