...From here, I'd be worrying a little about whether it's fake. Except, as usual, there will be some people here who know that much more about all of this than I do.
@+VGO.DVCKS is correct that it's fake.

...No, just weird.
Why not shop at better sources where you don't have to ask whether the coins are authentic every time? There are plenty of threads here discussing good sources for coins
I ran accross it looking at other coins, it was ones of those "similar items" coin related that popped up after I got a coin off another dealer. I think it was from a dealer in Germany. I am going to go back and look. I didnt see the dealer on the known fake list but I know some of those guys change their names.
I'm not really talking about specific eBay sellers but eBay sellers in general. Lots of fakesellers aren't on the lists because the lists require people to both spot the fakes and actually take the time to report them. Some sellers are new, or low volume, or in some cases sell a mix of authentic and inauthentic coins. The best thing to do as a new collector is to avoid sites like eBay. There are plenty of good dealers and auction houses out there that are better places to spend your money.
I agree. Even for authentic coins in legitimate slabs, especially common types, it's not a good idea to buy on ebay unless you have a lot of experience, because most such coins are grossly inflated in price.
I definitely am finding out about those things, I like the auction houses better. Good deals (here and there) and decent shipping prices, even with the 9% auction fee the one place I frequent has been great all around.
