Fake US Grant star coin?

Hi everyone,

 

I was wondering everyones thoughts on this coin. Do you believe this to be a real star coin? When looking at the star, it doesn't appear that there is any displaced material around the star and it seems to be relatively cetered on the N and not too close to the A, but there doesn't appear to be a lot of coloring or brown spots in the coin like I normally see with these Grant coins. I don't have access to the coin so I can't really get any other details about the coin.

It does appear genuine, the star is in the right location and there does appear to be no displacement.

My question would be why is a high value coin with a mintage of only around 4,250 not been certified.

That's what made me question is it real or not. You would think that they would have submitted it for certification by now, but it does look real from everything that I can see and can tell. 

 

From what I am told though, it came from the collection of their grandfather so it wasn't even a thought really to have it graded as they were just trying to get rid of the pieces of the collection.
