Have you put the coin on a scale yet. Should weigh 3.1 grams or close to it. Becareful china makes some good fakes now days. If you get the proper weight send it in to certify it. Ken

From his web page:


"100% Copper collectors later made restrike repro piece."

That means that these are fake. And possibly illegal. Definitely intended to deceive, regardless of what the seller might say.

Freakin' Etsy again!  That place is turning into the numismatic sewer of the internet!!  It's a fake, a somewhat deceptive fake because of the weight, but a fake nonetheless and likely illegal as Bob said.  There are some very deceptive fakes of all sorts of coins coming out of China and elsewhere these days, and many of them end up on Etsy.  The fact that there are exact duplicates of an extremely rare coin that are found so easily is a huge red flag.  Please, everyone, when it comes to coins, just stay off of Etsy.......you'll save yourself a lot of trouble!

Thanks Bob!  I wish there was a way to post a huge cyber-billboard of this!
