Gotta be something wrong with it…1877 Indian Head Penny…gotta be fake right?

Gotta be a fake, but the front 2 feathers look ok to me. Also the last feather in the head dress points between the "I" and the "C" in "America." Every fake I have seen the last feather points between the C and the A in America similar to the later Indians, such as the 1909. The material isn’t porous, and the weight a few hundreth’s of a gram light (acceptable imo). Problem I am having is that it is a highly counterfeited, ungraded coin that is not at a certified coin dealers location. Guy has other coins that I know are genuine, but I am weary to buy. If legit, the price is about 1/3 below my estimated value/grade.

Your thoughts.
