    Would appreciate members thoughts. TIA

    Anything with this color is a Chinese fake.

    There are a few real coins with this coloring, but at this point they're WAY outnumbered by the fakes. Stay away.

    Has a poor look to it. When a seller gives qualifiers like that, they likely have doubts themselves...

    Seller put it for sale by on-line NZ auction starting at $1. 'Trade Dollar - possible copy'. Start price $1

    It was sold for $NZ52. :eek:

    55 Bids

    Someone, somewhere bought a dud. Wonder if they will try to resell it on ebay
