This coin looks to be a cast fake. Do you agree?

From the pictures alone, it looks like it could certainly be a fake. I would not bid much, if any, for it.

Here is another currently for sale. It looks better, but I still wouldn't bid on it. Too many examples of this rare type show up on eBay for me to have much confidence in any of them without closer inspection.

This one is probably a struck fake from different dies.
