@Danaro1. Did you sell your coin?

they don't care what they sell as long as it makes them money
Either you are in denial, are a moron, or a crook.
Karma will have a way of working it out
XD... I hope so
No I didn't, it's not for sale...
None of the above
Not even for $610?
@Danaro1. Thank you for your reply. I'm curious to know if you're going to send it in to have it authenticated and graded?
Next he'll be advertising it, "As Seen On CoinTalk!"
I think we can narrow that list down a little . . .
Aliexpress (and other chinese based websites). Before the US cracked down that marketplace was littered with "rare and expensive" US coins.
Morgans, ASEs, AGEs, Peace Dollars, 1955 DD cents .. you name it. You could buy them by the dozen for only a few dollars. Of course, all fake. The early fakes were more easily recognizable. But they improved and made much, much better fakes.
There are a lot of threads on there about such good fakes. Example ==> https://www.cointalk.com/threads/a-“family”-of-struck-fake-draped-bust-dollars.348423/
Before the crack down they did not have the "COPY" stamp on them. But you'll find many previously imported examples still littering places like etsy, craigslist, ebay, etc
The key red flag is finding a super rare coin that is not slabbed/authenticated already.
Of course, the counterfeiters got good at creating fake slabs too.
I used to go to that website all the time and compare the pictures to pictures of raw coins I was looking at acquiring. here's pics of before the COPY stamp crackdown ==> https://www.cointalk.com/threads/sitting-liberty-dollar-coin-questions.331523/#post-3325245
or for bad fake==> https://www.cointalk.com/threads/trade-dollar.331564/
I was gonna suggest that. Buy for $700, return, seller is out $21 + shipping both ways.
Now send it to a TPG and let us know what they say....
