Like the seller says, "fill that coin hole with a cheaper coin that no one can afford." Essentially, these are great for collectors who would never be able to afford an original example and would otherwise look at blanks in their albums forever.
Out before someone brings up the C-name.
If eBay pretends to enforce the HPA, then why is there a separate category for "fantasy" dates when the FTC has already ruled those must also be marked? EBay doesn't give a rip.
The "C-name" bit was a joke, not a recommendation.
The closest thing I see is a "Coins: US -> Novelty" category...?
Better quality too...
I didn't use the "c word" in my initial post.
Exonumia --> Fantasy Issue Coins

If there is an Indian expert that can look at those not listed as repro and PM a list of counterfeits with accurate diagnostics of those that are copies and how you know they are, I will get those taken care of also.
Anyone can PM me with links to counterfeit sellers, include item number/s and description to make it easier please.
You are allowed to feel they SHOULD have the right to have these. The fact is they do not. We have a law called the Hobby Protection Act and an update of this called The Collectible Coin Protection Act. They have specific rules for copies. I understand Ebay cares very little. I do care. every collector should also IMHO.
Ah, I was stuck in the "US" category. I thought I must be missing something.
Did you try to talk to the seller ?
