That is kind of scary! What is the future of collecting if this stuff starts to flood the market??
NGC and PCGS have certificate verification websites to check cert #'s and usually have pictures of both side of the coins.
Actually, PCGS doesnt usually have photos of the coin. You have to pay extra for that service, so that"s NOT the big tell for a counterfeit coin/holder. Im not worried about ME buying a c/f, more concerned for others.
I was just curious what these fakes looked like and how good are they getting at faking these?
But it doesn't work very well when you are considering buying items online. And eventually the counterfeiters will determine what that trace additive is, and then your $300 scanner will be worthless.
They've been around for a long time hence they keep upping the security on the slabs. A lot of them are really bad and they're mostly the older generation with wrong fonts and/or spacing ect
The additive is more a cheat for them then the general public anyway. Even if they do get the additive right there is still a trueview attached to those now.
