  1. I pulled it out and looked at it closely, it doesn't look like rub on the cheek, just toning that shows more due to lighting angles. If it is album rub from long ago, it isn't as much as is on this PCGS MS66RB. And it sure doesn't have a huge scratch on the reverse like this one.
  2. Ebay seller foxcoins continues to list counterfeits. They describe them as such but without COPY on thee coin, they are illegal. The buyer of these may not disclose that they are counterfeit.
  3. What does the reverse look like, could that have prevented it? I sent in some stuff to the other guys and at least 3/20 were under. The biggest issue IMO is the inconsistency. If they are tightening the standards back to what they were 20 yrs ago which seems to be the case, then some coins from 5 yrs ago are valued at multiples of a better coin because the better coin was graded in 2019 or 1999. Buy the coin, not the holder, right? Isn't the holder supposed to be so that those who aren't good at grading can rely on the experts? This is a $12,000 coin based on TPG This is my $200 coin based on the same TPG. It is not nearly as dark as the photos, almost pure red. There are clash marks and die cracks but where are the nicks or hits?
  4. Ebay seller 1516mn27_0 https://www.ebay.com/sch/1516mn27_0/m.html?item=223503456833&hash=item3409d81a41%3Ag%3ADYAAAOSwu0NczKwi&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2562 Ebay has known about this for 3 months They have over $4500 in sales of FAKE coins in just the past 60 days. Ebay does nothing about this user except take their cut $$$$
  5. Ebay seller elielizquin https://www.ebay.com/sch/m.html?_sop=10&_ipg=200&LH_PrefLoc=2&_ssn=elielizquin#itemTitle AKA enriqubri-0 https://www.ebay.com/sch/m.html?_nkw=&_sop=10&_ipg=200&LH_PrefLoc=2&_ssn=enriqubri-0#itemTitle Ebay has known since 4/28/2017 that this is a seller of counterfeits. It has been over 2 years that they let this continue. Ebay's inaction is CRIMINAL!
  6. Ebay seller racata_0 sold 2 fake 1909SVDB cents last month, trying for a third now.
  7. At least this seller (foxcoins) admits he is selling fakes. It is very likely the buyer will re-list them and scam someone. The 6 counterfeits should be gone on 5/5/19.
  8. Was it shipped to a different address than that of the user's paypal and Ebay has listed? In other words, was the address changed on the hacked account? Does anyone know if Ebay can press charges based on the address the coin was sent to? I sure hope they press the issue and catch the crook.
  9. Bob, could you please PM me? I can get counterfeits removed but there are procedures that I have to follow. I won't be able to post here if it interferes with procedure. I can explain more in PM. Thank You, Ed
  10. Ebay seller mjbruns has 17 counterfeits listed. Claims: "I THINK THIS IS A COPY BUT THEY ARE NOT MARKED AS SO. I HAVE MORE THAN ONE SO YOU MIGHT NOT GET THE ONE PICTURED BUT IT WILL BE OF SAME QUALITY. " Anyone that has multiples of 17 different coins knows very well that they are counterfeit.
  11. I wasn't going to because I am not sure they are knowingly selling counterfeits. Since that one sold before it could be removed I will disclose their seller ID. It is racata_0
  12. Die cracks on the reverse make a good die marker for these counterfeits. R of PLURIBUS to the O of ONE U of PLURIBUS to the N of one to N of CENT N of UNUM to the E of ONE
  13. That is gorgeous!!! I bought my first medals in Pittsburgh at the ANA. I like that medals are way rarer than a coin from the same period, yet many are still somewhat affordable in high grades. I have started collecting what I like instead of what everyone else places value on. I'm sure that piece is going to make the new owner very happy.
  14. I am NOT saying your coin is a replica. I can not tell from those pictures. I do recommend looking at all the counterfeits available to get an idea of what they look like. 1885 Morgan for $1.20 available here
