Bob is absolutely right, it's a fake, unfortunately.  There are a ton of fakes of the 1804 dollar as it is a well known extreme rarity.  I think that there's something like 15 of them that are known to exist and they sell for millions of dollars when they are offered for sale.  Any future offerings of 1804 dollars are something I would run from.

I'd go so far as to say that it's not even a very good quality counterfeit. It just looks crappy. No offense to the OP, just calling it as one sees it.

I was perusing the Newman/Bresset book on the 1804 dollar last night. Does anyone know which example is the one owned by Trade Dollar Nut? I don't know his real name.

I believe he owns the Dexter/Pogue example.
