The secret Service would be driven around the twist if the TPG
's reported every coin they considered fake.
Their existing policies under the circumstances are OK.
I collect fake coins
they are sold to me as a fake.
I have learnt a great deal about the identification of fake coins just by close study of my own 'black' collection.
If I see a coin that is posted here on the CCF that I consider to be a fake, I will not comment on it unless the initiator of the thread has asked for an opinion.
The reason for this, has to do with the fact that in order to come to a reasonably considered opinion, you should really examine the coin in hand very carefully.
How can you spot a fake, unless you educate yourself in knowing what to look out for?
This is one of the important ways any dealer worth his salt becomes experienced in the identification of fakes.
Even then, I will ask the originator of the thread some questions that will help him make his own assessment as the the authenticity of the coin in question, and perhaps add some comments for consideration.
