I've been following a certain seller on eBay, their market trends and what they are selling their coins for. As a big fan of Busts and Barbers, I can't help but see their ads because of the sheer amount of volume. I have been warned before by CT experts, and red flags now go up with this seller. First of all almost every single coin that they sell is artificially toned. Is this a problem? Maybe they have just realized and adjusted to the fact that people will buy artificially toned coins? My questions began with the toning itself. It is all the same. Whoever is doing the toning is doing it on all of the busts. Secondly, the prices that they are getting for the coins are not near the prices they could get if they were not toned. This is where it gets cloudy in my book. They are selling AU++ - MS coins that are toned for AU prices. Why would they take a hit like that? Furthermore, and my most thought provoking question is who is there source? Where are they buying these coins from? Who would sell them an MS level bust cheap enough that they could turn such a profit by selling at AU prices? Did they make an investment a long time ago and stockpile toned coins? Just wondering. If I have a question, it is very hard for me to hold back.
