    Coin Week reissued my 1st published article in that forum on the recent struck counterfeits.


    Through the research at the time I realized many of the genuine source coins were damaged examples, sold cheaply for the varieties and then repaired to create the counterfeit dies- led to help "find" over 25 different fake examples over the next couple of years...

    Updated article includes a link at the end for several of the other articles I have had published in that forum.

    image is of the latest updated master list of these deceptive struck fakes including the most recent addition, the 1871 pattern dollar; my research article on that one was recently published in the fall edition of the LSCC's Gobrecht Journal.

    These examples continue to show up in various venues for sale as well as being TPG certified as genuine...

    Best, Jack.

    Thanks for the heads up Jack. The China Hell Makers are getting more sophisticated and brazen. I often wonder how they get all this stuff though customs, this too must be a very sophisticated operation. Be safe.
