    He has so many fakes listed and keeps listing more and duplicates of the same series and date. While he states theyre repro pieces, he has them listed as manufactured in the US and with no copy stamps. In violation of the bay's policies. Could we get these listings taken down? Also can someone post the pics for educational purposes?

    Check out Listia. The Chinese are even making fakes of common date coins.

    The Chinese fake 'everything' and I mean everything they think they can make a dollar off. Gucci, Nike. everything. It's an industry in China.

    Sports apparel is HUGE, too. Don't buy ANYTHING that hasn't been licensed by the appropriate league and doesn't carry the correct licensing tags. That includes uniforms and caps. I've seen many people hawking unlicensed stuff at flea markets and they do get caught.

    In addition to eBay, Facebook is loaded with people trying to sell fake Morgan & Peace Dollars, $2 1/2 gold pieces, and other coins. Almost all of these fakes are coming from China. Unbelievable that they also have fake positive Feedback from supposed purchasers. I have tried to report them, but it seems nothing is being done.

    I looked at the first listing and it is clearly marked as a reproduction. Ebay has nothing against this.

    It's only going to get worse; soon even your canned vegetables will be coming from China, most of your seafood already is.

    The listing states "1916 Standing Liberty Quarter Fantasy Repro." The coin should have the word copy stamped on it but to protect from the unscrupulous who may try to cheat the unwary. What is misleading, in my opinion, in this listing is under "Country/Region of Manufacture" the seller has "United States," and, "Mint Location: Philadelphia." Were these repos manufactured in the United States? As far as the mint, it was definitely not minted in Philadelphia.

    Instead of "Made in China" it should read "Made in Hell." My opinion only.

    There is a company called "The American Mint" and located in Philadelphia I believe. And they do make repros of many U.S. classic coins. The are gold plated with a copper core, in proof condition, come with a COA but have no relationship to the U.S. Mint or any other government entity. The one in the photo does not look anything like what American Mint produces though.

    Wrong and wrong. The picture might show the word "COPY" on it, but the coins they are selling are not marked. Either way, eBay doesn't allow them to be sold.

    Isn't it ironic that the US gave China their old coin presses that got them started :(

    I have a few 'counterfeits' in my collection of coins, mostly English and dating from the English Civil War (1640). They were meant to deceive and pass as ligitimate currency, but they have not stood the passage of time well, and look pretty sad today.
    I'm aware of 'contemporary 'Anglo Saxon' and 'Viking' forgeries, and have one or two 'Roman' ones too.

    the ads you listed have been taken down and or ended. you know the times have changed, haven't they? i can remember growing up and my dad showing me how to care for coins and how to look for the different types that would grade a specific way. once all these fakes flooded the markets and i started to see these fakes in person i knew it wouldn't be long before these counterfeiters would be getting better and better. so now a days you teach your kids or whoever wants to learn how to care for your coins and how to look for the different types that would grade a specific way and how to spot fakes. its sad that people have to deal with this but once again, the times have changed...good luck yawl.

    You make a fair point. The Philadelphia Mint is not the only mint in Philadelphia. This could save the listing from fraud claims.

    It does remind me of the story about "Best of the Beatles," an album put out by Savage Records (1966) by Pete Best, who was a drummer for the Beatles before they became famous.
