Questionable coin, too much polish and the wear pattern of scales is not correct.

Should the wear pattern of scales be more evenly distributed ?
I thought usually it's the high points that wear off first.

Why is too much polish a sign of forgery ?
Maybe the previous owner was too enthusiastic in cleaning the coin.

I also noticed the letters: "AND" and "2" are faint, is that a concern ?

How do the chopmarks on the reverse look ?

Thanks for your insights poconopenn.
