The photos are not clear and it is hard to tell.

I tried to adjust the contrast for the pictures. I did manage to obtain a better details for the obverse. Based on this picture, IMO, the coin is highly questionable and not genuine. Attached also pictures of NGC graded coin for comparison. This coin was sold at HA auction on Jan. 13, 2015 for $3,172.50.
