Is a 1845-S seated liberty dollar real?

No. San Francisco did not strike seated Liberty dollars until 1859. In fact, the first branch mint to strike dollars was New Orleans in 1846.

Recent years have seen an enormous number of counterfeit coins appear on the market, mostly dollar (or dollar-sized) pieces and most made in the Far East. The quality ranges from excellent to laughably bad, with (as you see) impossible dates or mint marks.
