The two pictures look very different and neither one provides a particularly good look at the coin. The obverse picture had me thinking that the coin was probably genuine. but the reverse picture gave me pause.

Authenticity decisions based on a few fuzzy photos are not reliable. In-hand, examine the reeding for inconsistencies, and on the faces search on-line for known counterfeits. The condition is EF.

I’m not convinced that the coin’s genuine and unless you can be certain that it is, it would be unwise to buy it. There are professionally graded examples of various grades, which are widely available at reasonable prices. So there’s no need to take an unnecessary risk. But if you want to buy an ungraded one, make sure it’s from a well established seller with an excellent reputation.

If it’s gold, not stolen, not lost and not in the hands of a clueless seller, sure. But ask yourself why it’s only $100. Something is obviously very wrong.

I'll keep ya updated and we'll know in a week
