I am VERY suspicious of it. There are an awful lot of modern copies of this and other rare date coins out there these days and would always want proper provenance or a dealer's guarantee or willingness to take returns if I was not able to see the coin in hand. This seller, I see, won't take returns and that just doubles my suspicion. 

Coins like this really need to be seen in the flesh by experienced eyes - one cannot tell a thing for sure from photos and so personally I would avoid...

See it just sold for £189. Way too little if genuine, way too much if a copy 😳.

I know which way I'd tend to lean and think that someone isn't going to have such a merry Christmas...

If anyone here bought it, and it turns out to be fine, happy to be proved wrong!
