Color" "RESTRIKE", it better well be an 1893-S!!!
Sure, the description says "RESTRIKE", but it doesn't say that...or "COPY" on the coin itself. The fact that it's non-magnetic and the correct size and weight leads me to believe this slug is illegal for sale.
I was going to say the same thing. Email Amazon the 1978 Hobby Protection Act makes this a blatantly illegal item to be sold in the US.
Except we have a Federal Law making any object like this illegal. If we do not try to enforce it, do you think anyone else in the world will?
I do not CARE about this ad. The truth is, this item will be bought, and people will inherit it and try to sell it. When told its a fake, they will hate all coin collectors and accuse all of us of being crooks. However, if the word COPY is stamped in it, there is a chance they will not hate us, and accept grandpa bought a copy and not a real coin.
But, the problem is they and their ilk are killing the little guy.
Depends on where the seller is located. If they are in China it is perfectly legal for them to sell it
It IS illegal. It is legal for the sellers (if they are in China) to sell them, but it is still illegal for the buyer here to import them into the country. So the seller isn't breaking any laws, the buyer is.
Yes, they might of tried to legally cover themselves but word silver is right next to
copronickel. That could trick at least 50% of the targeted people.
Would make no difference. You can't police what other countries are selling and customs have about a million things that is far more important for them to be searching for than a cheap replica coin
I think a lot of people will fall for this, just like they did for colorized Quarters at 12.50 each.
