    Hello everyone,

    I spotted this toner on eBay this morning and I just wanted your thoughts on it. If you can, please tell me what grade it is and if the toning is real or fake. Thank you so much for any responses!

    Just pick what you want to pay and bid at the last second and most of all don't get carried away with the GSC followers.

    Great Southern Coins.........known to enhance and 'juice' stuff. Shy away from these fellows unless you really want the 'problem' coin..........

    I would not trust the coin will look like the image.

    I recommend you don't buy from that seller. They take photographs to make the coin look better than it really is. They are also well-known to sell polished and damaged coins.

    Thanks everyone for your help. I decided to skip this auction and let it finish on its own. It ended at $14.75, which in my opinion is pretty low.

    It has spots, a chewed up rim, and unknown other stuff hiding behind the overexposed pictures. 62BN at best, likely AT. Once in a while, a GSC buyer gets lucky, but that's the exception, and not the rule.

    Most of the GSC coins that I've purchased and sent in to NGC have come back with details designation. My experiences with them is their GEM BU++++ should be choice BU (MS 62). They are good at manipulating images so buyer beware.

    Great southerns photographer can make any coin look great. On that note. Oh. I see green18 is on the ball as usual.

    Not if the coin or the photo has been doctored.

    looks like several potholes .. which maybe means they removed verdigris .. then probably while baking it they also toned it.

    That seller overcharges and over grades their coins and is only on eBay to extract as much as they can from their buyers. This is unlike many fair dealers who value their clientele and sell things at fair prices.

    Every single raw coin they sell has been cleaned, altered, or has some other sort of problems. They take really juiced photos that hide the problems, and prey on people who don't know any better. That coin might look nice now, but I guarantee it has a problem.
