People are going to offer less for it if it looks like it's peeled.

I am far from an expert, however which pictures does the hologram look peeled in? From what I can see, the pictures where the hologram is displayed, the hologram looks fine.

The 3rd from the bottom in the OP. The bottom section has the honeycomb pattern.

Great catch! No honeycomb pattern should be visible at all unless the hologram has been tampered with. The fool proof way to see if the coin is really loaded is to check the short key on the blockchain. In this case the coin does still have BTC1 loaded on it -> http://blockexplorer.com/address/142fuYHGtMifp3ofY9pCu4nd9mFVqqKms9

I honestly still can't see it, however you are probably more of an expert then me so I will take your word for it.

Maybe it is because I have never seen a redeemed one in person before.

This would really not be effective. It would be possible that a prior owner had recorded the private key of the coin after tampering with the hologram and would later redeem the funds associated with the private key/address.

Sorry to to this do you OP, but it is pretty important to know what you're buying.

It's been tampered with at least. May not have been completely peeled but enough to make the honeycomb effect and possibly reveal the private key.

Sadly I've peeled a few in my time (regret it now years later) and that's what it looks like.

This picture provides overwelming eveidence that this coin is peeled.
I think the miffman has done an excelent forensic job here.
I would like to hear what wheresmycoin has to say about that picture?
It is not unlikely that wheresmycoin was not aware of this untill now?

It would also great if the previous owners could be tracked....example who did wheresmycoin get the coin from, and who did that person get the coin from. It seams that there is someone in the line of owners who is up to no good.... It would be good if that person could be public known.

In case the original post should be deleted (by mistake, ofcause).... this is the coin in question:

The fact that the user name and date look like they have been photoshopped into the picture is also suspicious.

I was going to say that.  Why photoshop your name and date?

Photoshopped is a bit exaggerated, more like a ms paint job.  I would really like to buy one, but not this one.

I was going to say that having some experience with holograms I'd say that someone has played around with that one but Miffman's (excellent) proof shows it clearly.
Even simply applying the hologram and adhusting it slightly wouldn't do that. The honeycomb effect only takes place after the hologram has been put on the coin with pressure and is then peeled after.
The whole hologram may not have been peeped but the side of it has even tampered with. I'd be weary of buying this coin for that reason. In essence you'd have no idea if one of the owners along the line decided to copy down the private key somewhere.

as moebius mentioned, it is written in paint and then printed out. Didn't want to use a ball pen.
