    The number checks out with a last auction appearance of $5,300.

    Did you report to Ebay???

    I reported a die cast counterfeit 1916-D on eBay earlier this week..... Seller was in Indonesia and claiming “Autentic Silver Coin”.

  13. The coin pictured is genuine. The seller just stole the photos and is selling a different holder which has a grade of MS-61

    They unwittingly assume the buyer will be as unsophisticated as them. They clearly want to make a point of the coin being in a genuine holder, as if a picture of a slabbed coin isn't indicative of that enough. Calling that out in a conspicuous way AND not knowing the proper term for a holder really makes this counterfit attempt humorous.
     
  15. Genuine coins, stolen images, probably from Heritage. But you will get a fairly obvious fake in a holder with the same grade/serial number.

    I informed an eBay seller offering a fake 1850 seated half dollar for sale last week that eBay failed to protect her by not adequately policing their marketplace for fakes before she bought it from another eBay seller. She willingly pulled it, and was going to give eBay an earful while trying to be made whole again.

    I'm hoping that, incensed as she was, she manages to find the right pair of ears.

    If eBay hears that same perspective from a bunch of similarly disgruntled buyers, and comes to the realization that THEY alone own the integrity of their marketplace, maybe, just maybe they'll give this issue some more attention.

  17. How are these counterfeit grade tags being produced with the anti-
    counterfeit reflective strip on the back in each slab container?? Not possible
    with just printers...?

    physics-fan3.14 You got any more of them.... prooflikes?

    The images they show are of genuine coins and slabs - they've stolen the images from real auctions. If you win the con's Ebay sale, you'll get something else in the mail. It won't be a convincing fake.

    You can have the reflective strips made, just like PCGS and NGC do. Sure they won't be exactly like theirs but you can get them good enough to fool a lot of people.

    For my son's birthday I bought a refurbished MSI brand laptop on Ebay. When I got it, the keyboard had problems, it had a lower amount of RAM than was advertised (16Gb), and the model was a different # than advertised. Fortunately Ebay buyer protection let me return it.

    There are a # of other sites specializing in coins like Great Collections. Why do people insist on trying to find rarities on Ebay? It seems to me more hassle than it's worth.

    Incidentally I ended up buying another laptop on newegg. Still refurbished but with a 180 day manufacturer warantee. I insist on MSI brand but they tend to be very pricey new.
