I'm sorry it took so long for anyone to reply. Ordinarily, I would suggest starting a new thread for an introduction post but your coin is a Jupiter and appropriate here. It is NEVER safe to say a coin is genuine just from a photo, especially a fuzzy one. It is often very possible to point out a fake from even a poor photo. Your coin strikes me as probably OK but not a terribly nice example of a common type which is what you might expect from many eBay sellers. I hope you will read many posts here and share again what comes your way next. Meanwhile, practice taking photos. Below is another example of a similar coin of Licinius II.
