I agree. I'm sure there's a reason for the blurred pictures.
It does look like a real 1926-S but don't think I'd shell out $500+ for something I can't verify.
I was thinking 189_385-091
You can also get the opinion of a NGC expert for authentication. There's a fee for this service but I'm not sure if they charge if they can't authenticate it.
I wouldn't bid on it without more info.
That's what got me scratching my head. For a coin as valuable as this one a seller would definitely want good pictures.
I also contacted the seller.
Probably got returned after the buyer put on his glasses.
How can you tell? The photo is so out of focus, you can't tell if the slab or coin is genuine.
Bad photo = "Run Forest run!" Further more they are quoting PCGS prices on an "NGC graded" coin.
There is something rotten in Denmark ... and on eBay.
I sent the seller a message about getting clearer photos and the certification number. So far silence, telling me that something is rotten in Denmark.
The coin closeups are clear
That's the strange part. The close-ups seem to validate the grade of XF-45; strong date and full horn. However, there's no way to verify that the coin in the close-ups is the same as the one in the blurry full slab images. I still haven't received a response from my message to the seller. For fifty bucks I'd probably take a chance that it's legit; for $500+, no way.
