    2 adds running in my feed today; source sells counterfeits and uses stolen images of genuine slabbed coins and adds from good Dealers in the listings. I previously reported the 1875-CC PCGS slabbed image and the Dealer's images and they were removed but replaced with others.

    I am guilty of purchasing one of the 1875-CC's; I wanted to see what I would receive and if it had a working chip, which it did not:

    I have reported the adds to FB for what that will get me- seems something better could be done about these.

    Love this one for the NGC 1918/7 SL quarter:

    FB is a cesspool. I'm guessing Zuck cares even less about facilitating the sales of counterfeits than ebay or HiBid or Etsy. Haven't been on there in over a year.

    Says "copy" in the description, as if that matters. Reported.

    Edit - seller took it down. I sent them a message and got the usual attitude in response, but they killed it anyway.

    So is that "CĊ" mintmark (dot above the second C) a tell, or is there an actual variety with that feature?

    I wonder if mass PM would be a better avenue.
    All of those have different certs.
    They are getting better by the day, buy smart folks.

    Their follow-up article essentially says: "Everyone be careful!"

    Did I read that correctly? One "victim" bought five of them, all from the same seller, all with the same cert #? What makes them think they're getting an $825 coin for $25? I guess greed overwhelms all rational thinking.
