    These proliferate the internet with some sellers actually not having a clue.

    This seller ended his auction but it is still up with good images; one would think having 2 with the same cert # would be a clue:D...

    And clue 2, the cert is dead; one of the 1st I reported to PCGS:

    And an error slab fake!

    Thanks Jack. Problem is apparently there are more buyers without a clue than sellers.

    the scammers only need a sucker here and there to make a dishonest living.

    Jack is definitely making life harder for these scammers and i too appreciate it! :)

    Thanks for the positive comments. I am fortunate to have an avenue for reporting bad listings effectively.

    I report out here only a fraction of what I see; on a continuing theme this seller is either really clueless or something much worse...

    Both of his 1883-CC Morgans are shown reverse first, and only the first listing description cites the cert #, which is common to both of his examples.

    Unfortunately PCGS has done nothing with this reported cert and it is also no help since it has no on-line comparison images.
