I talked to Bret and he insists the coin is authentic. He also said you can't tell whether or not the coin is real just by looking at pictures which was a jab at Coin Talk. He did offer to refund the coin at 90% if I sent it back or refund at 100% if I sent it to a TPG and they determine it to be fake. He would also reimburse the TPG fees too. And he was really condescending about it said after two years you decide its fake? I really gave him a hard time about this said I've been a customer for 25 years and this is how you treat me. And that his grading/authenticating skills leave a lot to be desired.
