    Hello everyone,
    We were following this obvious altered Cent on @JCro57 Facebook page on Mint Errors. Some members and even I messaged the seller to inform them that the item in question was not a mint error of any kind.. it sold earlier today for over $400.00
    :facepalm::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::sour:.. 21 Bids :bored:

    It's a vise job!
    Edit* It was not an item for sale by Joseph Cronin. Someone misunderstood my post.

    Let's hope it was a knowledgeable "buyer" who will set the seller straight.

    Looking up the listing I see nine people dodged a bullet and canceled their bids during the auction. Four or five lined up to jump off the cliff

    What's sad is I occasionally try to inform ebay of misleading items like this and they almost never take them down. I even go into detail about what exactly the issue is, hoping to save someone somewhere from getting ripped off and they don't care! :banghead: This is disgusting behavior on ebay's part. Money over honesty is what ebay is about I guess. :(

    Ebay does give 30 days for the recipient to decide about the coin after it is received
    and they can return it for full refund,

    I have done this for several coins over $300. I think they do not want the responsibility to decide and leave it up to the buyer to research and decide. It is not their coin , they are just the middle man,
