Is it really?
I'm not an expert on the American Eagles, but just reading the coa scan, I would read it as the U.S. Mint did the orignal coin, but not the gold plating. What does everyone else think? Also, the copyright notice down at the bottom right is not from the US Mint. It looks to me like it says The Merrick Mint. To be honest, if it were my money spent to get the coin, I don't know if I would have.
