Differences
On the fake, the raised oval on which the CC privy mark is incused is positioned covering a portion of the ribbon on the wreath, and also touches the O in DOLLAR.

On the genuine coin, the privy mark is centered below the ribbon, equidistant from the ribbon and the D and O in DOLLAR.

The lettering, date and other details are mushy on the counterfeit when compared against those for the genuine coin.

On the genuine coin’s obverse, the R in PLURIBUS is positioned away from the corn leaf in the wreath on Liberty’s head. On the fake, the R touches the leaf.

Mint Engraver George T. Morgan’s M designer’s initial on the genuine coin appears on the truncation of Liberty’s portrait, just to the left of the last hair curl straight above the 0 in the date.

On the fake, the designer’s initial, based on the eBay images, appears to be missing.

On the counterfeit’s reverse, the first A in AMERICA touches the eagle’s left wing; on the genuine issue, there is space between the letter A and the wing.

The F in OF on the fake is close to the T in TRUST, while on the genuine coin it is distant.

Compare the images of the genuine coin to that of the counterfeit to identify additional differentiating diagnostics.
