    I can't guess. But, he does have a lot of gold for sale.

    Probably real, probably not the sellers but some random pictures that they pulled off the internet as no 2 listings are the same background.
    Seller is brand spankin' new from Hungary.
    That translates to Hard Pass.
    Have them Booted...that's not NGC certified as the listing states.

    I think they are purging their collection.

    I wouldn't want to be the guinea pig to find out how reputable they are.

    Zero-feedback seller from Hungary, listing quite a lot of gold?

    Did I mention that he has zero feedback?

    And that he'd be shipping from Hungary, meaning shipping delays are likely to be expected?

    He might be a legit seller. If so, I feel bad for him. Of all the folks apparently bidding on the auctions, I wonder how many of them will turn out to be scammers?

    Yes, red flags for sure, the packaged gold bars don't help him at all! :arghh: That said, he could be totally legit but there are quite a number of coin minting operations in Hungary as I've seen plenty of fakes coming from that Country. :cigar: Here's a fake Daniel Carr that came from Hungary a few years ago! I bought it knowing it was a fake to add to my counterfeit collection. The mintage numbers are really low on this copy as I told Daniel the seller had fakes for sale and he put the brakes on that seller right away! :D Low mintage numbers don't help me in this case! :shame:

    The coin in the pic is real.

    Yes, but that doesn't address the odds that the "winner" will actually receive a real coin.

    From Hungary, and brand new ? I would have to pass on that just to skeptical
    of a newbie from another country.
