    I don't suppose it has any bearing on the legality of the seller's actions, but it still really gets my goat.

    Behold, seller brumleyusmc1955:

    1916 D Mercury Dime (commemorative)

    1894 S Barber Dime - Commemorative

    In each listing, the seller says:

    Yes, yes, I imagine that's true. And I'm willing to trust your word that you did serve our country, and I see that you're selling other coins that apparently are legit, and you do list these AS "commemorative" (whatever that's supposed to mean).

    But they're fakes of key-date coins, not marked as copies (and they'd still be against current eBay policy, even if they were marked).

    As were the multiple 1909-S VDB cents and 1916 SLQs that you've already sold, as well as the other 1916-D Merc.

    You're violating eBay policy. You're violating the law. And you're trying to use the United States Marine Corps to defend your reputation.

    Shameful.

    So, did you contact the seller, or eBay?

    Oh, I reported the coins, under "copyright violation" (since I've pretty much concluded that the "coins and paper money" report gets ignored). I don't expect any results, though.

    The sad thing is the obviously fabricated story that these "were handed out at coin shows in the 1950's and 60's" lets us all know the seller is fully aware that these are modern Chinese counterfeits.

    funny thing in his Barber Dime description

    This is one of those coins - one of the rarest coins ever - the 1894s Barber Dime - this would sell for tens of thousands of dollars if it was an original.
