    1854 Penny: Fake or not?

    Hi there! I am here to learn. From what I saw from looking at several pictures online, this is a 1854 Plain Trident Penny. I refrained from bidding on it because of the position of the colon that follows the R on the reverse. Pictures of certified coins I have found online lead me to think it is too low on this example. Moreover, I have found images of fakes where the colon is low too. Looking for experts to chime in!
