Default Anybody that knows coins...Possible 125,000 coin on craigslist

So i came across a Craigs-list ad where the buyer is selling a copper coin, I open it and this picture is revealed. All it says is make an offer lol, so the seller is obviously either clueless or is selling a fake. I looked this coin up and IF real is a 1792 copper Disme and only 20-30 are known to exist, the value is $125,000...So what do you think coin experts?





Article below stating the value vv

1792 Disme (Dime) 1792 US Proposed Coinage Image Values

Fake as it gets. Compare the beak and tail feathers and you should see the difference fairly easy.

after viewing a real one.. this is 100% fake as I first assumed and others have stated. It's machine cast (first clue to being fake).. you will notice a slight rim around the edge. Coins from the era this was made were not cast that way. It wasn't until the 1850's or so that coins started having that machine cast look to them.

It does however appear to be a very old fake for what that's worth. I would guess 100-120 years old (or faked to appear that way)
