    They ended it because it was a pretty bad fake. Hopefully the seller was informed and did the right thing.

    A dead giveaway is the tiny black dots or blemishes, especially on the reverse. This is one sign of a casted fake.

    Here's the coin in question. It's a as fake as Captain Hooks hook hand. Awful looking. Looks like the garbage sold en masse on Etsy.

    I know, wrong is wrong? But why fake that date :happy:? Make it at least, an 1892 CC :happy:.

    It's all about flying under the radar. If you're trying to sell a fake 1892 CC you're going to attract some attention.

    This seller, has a bunch of fake Morgan common dates. https://www.etsy.com/shop/MintedGuru?ref=l2-about-shopname Plus a few better date fake coins in slabs. Which I've already reported to Etsy and PCGS. This seller has 275 sales atm. Even common fakes will bring in a nice profit. Considering the cheap price these go for at a site like Wish, the profit is tremendous. No point in bringing out the expensive fakes if you want to stay in business.

    Yeah I know, and TOTALLY understand, and agree w/ what you’re talking about. Which makes it even more sleazier and stupid.

    This guy is a lowlife. I feel bad for the people he (most likely) ripped off. But maybe? It’s their own fault? I’m conflicted? Although, I’m far from perfect myself. I ALWAYS do my own research/homework, before I pull the trigger on a coin on Ebay or etc. That helps. Good post though. People need to read stuff like that.

    It is an obvious fake, from an extremely dubious seller.
