    WOW, usually they pick a cert without an image:D!

    This one not only has a TrueView but is protected by the chip!

    Looks like an NGC case.

    And the prongs are wrong for them too; common slab for the Chinese counterfeits from many I have seen.

    Are rotated reverses known for this rarity?

    I let the guy/gal know that it could be a fake in a non-PCGS holder. This is his/her reply:

    I honestly don't know it is exactly how I got it

    SMH, who buys a $2G coin and doesn't know?

    I contacted him as well and showed him the on-line cert image. Would love to know if it actually has a scan-able chip...

    That isn't even remotely a PCGS slab is it?

    The chatter on Lady Liberty's jaw doesn't exist on the Ebay coin. Even the PCGS label is poorly done. Would PCGS want to know about this?

    Good!.... The sad thing about this is the bid is up to $1125.00. I can see some wife somewhere excited about getting this long awaited hole filler for her husband for Christmas or something.... These people make me sick.

    Have to admit the seller was quite clever made up a do it yourself slab.Cracked out a PCGS slab and put the cert in it unless its fake to.Then added a holographic sticker put the fake morgan in.All together with an authentic morgan pcgs images not the same coin and surely a fake indeed good job everyone.

    Vertigo Did someone say bust?

    In the wrong style holder... use a fake pcgs holder at least

    Vertigo Did someone say bust?

    No it's an NGC holder with a pcgs label inside. That right there should say ALARM!

    Nice job getting that taken down. If the crook took the time to make the holder look more legit... watch out!
