1806 1/2 cent fake or real?

In NY I went to a coin shop in the diamond district the place seemed to only have bullion but I asked the owner if he had any coins, he pulled out a tray of what looked like buffalo nickles and wheat pennies but upon further inspection, there was an 1806 half cent, this half cent had a 90 degree rotated die wich is common among early American coppers but I thought that was cool. I want to know if it is fake it is the with stems large 6 variety so in vf30 which I think it is in this coin would be worth 300 dollars if it was the small 6 it would be worth 2.9k (it's hard to tell) is it fake or not (better photos coming soon)

It would be very difficult to make an assessment with the pictures you posted but based on what I can see, it appears authentic.
