    I would say much more likely that someone paid $125 for a fake.

    If this were real it would the numismatic find of the century because it’s not a Proof. Mint records show that 12,000 business strike were made, but none of them have ever surfaced. They were either a blip in the mint mintage reporting process (actually had a different date), or they were melted sometime during the period when these pieces were stored in government vaults. They would have been just 12 bags of dollars.

    This thing is a product of China. The digits in the date are wrong. I am surprised that the eBay bidders didn’t take the bids higher. Usually they go nuts on counterfeits like this, which draws attention to them. That results in the removal of the listing.

    Edited to say, we know it’s real because “It was in granddaddy’s collection.” It’s funny how so many granddaddies collected fake coins from China. I can’t tell you how many times I have seen this line used in the description of a bogus coin in an eBay listing.

    More often you used to see 1795-S dollars with the mint mark removed or less often 1895-O dollars wih the same alteration. The 1895-O dollars are usually ugly which made turning that one into an "1895-P" less appealing. Most these alternations were done in the 1960s.

    Now both the 1895-S and 1895-O are expensive coins. Messing with them makes not economic sense.

    It was posted 15 minutes before I got a chance to buy it. Seller has both buy it now and bidding options. Darned! Even if it was fake, I have paypal protection which will give me enough time to send it to pcgs
