    So frustrating to win an auction and get a surprise metal-detector find that wasn't mentioned in the seller's description in the mail a week later!

    This poster has not only the ethics to point out that his coin was excavated, he even goes so far as to specify the planet of origin for inter-terrestrial collectors!

    Well earth maybe, but what about the hollow part? And Miss Liberty looks a bit reptilian to me.

    Clearly dropped from space to earth.
    Pocket to pumpkin patch... could have narrowed down the location a bit closer than DFE.

    Perhaps he meant, Earth, as in dirt beneath his feet. Nice coin, you are lucky to have it. Thanks for sharing.

    Oh my blue heaven! I didn't bid on this junk! I was just admiring the seller's honesty, though. It was the verbiage that made me chuckle.

    And nope. He capitalized it, "Earth". Too late, it's a proper noun now. Definitely marketing to aliens!

    I'm not buying the whole marketing to aliens thing . . . I want to know which planet the seller is from.

    If that's the case, I'm sure this seller's offerings are likely to be a Flash-in-the-pan.
