Okay, so my two questions about this coin are as follows:

1) Is this authentic

2) What grade would you give it?

Thank you!

Just my opinion on both questions, but it looks authentic to me based on known good coins,;howeverm obviously without the coin in hand it is always super tricky to judge.  I would grade it as VG-10 or F-12 personally, but with nice eye appeal.  Even in that kind of shape it is $500+ coin.

Borrowed a picture from this page.

I think your coin is genuine. Rim looks broader, but that can be wear or lighting. The 7 in the date is definitely shorter below, but that can be die filling.

I'd make it F+ (European grading). I think there is enough hair detail to go above Fine.
