Counterfeit Edward VII 50c?

I bought a raw 1903 50c on eBay quite a while ago. Since I have owned the coin I have wondered if it was dipped and then retoned.

Today I took a long hard look at it under the glass and I think I may have purchased a counterfeit. The surface is covered with minute tick marks, almost as if the coin was porous, and there is an extraneous protrusion of metal extending from the top of the R in GRATIA toward the rim.

I don't have a scale and the means for close-up photography but I have attached the seller's photos to this and the following message. Anybody care to weigh in on this one? It does not have that markers that are mentioned on the RCMP website that shows photos of counterfeit Edward VII pieces but I am highly suspicious.

Thanks.
