He has a 99+% positive feedback rating, so that seems OK but why, for
such a major rarity, hasn't the coin been graded/authenticated by one
of the major services?
Maybe it's just the "intence light from the scanner" but it doesn't
look like such a gem coin to me.
Just my 2 cents.

There is only one die in which the D mintmark is tilted very slightly
to the left.  On this coin, the mintmark looks to be decidedly tilting
to the right.  And the dignostics of this variety have been
overemphasized.  I think its a cleverly altered normal 37-D, or else a
struck counterfeit.
