The seller of this coin seems to be using photoshop to try to increase the eye appeal for those who don't know any better. Every coin he is selling has selective blurriness on it such as in the following picture:





Maybe Bobby can report this?

Evidently he has been doing this awhile?

Yup, this dealer has been discussed before on CCF for his photography skills. But he has very high positive feedback percentage, so it seems most buyers don't care or don't know better. The negative reviews are mostly about the coin they receive isn't as nice as the photos. He does offer returns. On his Morgan pics the shadows in the field are similar. Buyer beware.

Whatever he's doing, it's a lousy over-exposed photo.

Poor photoshopping skills to say the least. He's been on the no fly list with me since forever. How they have such positive feedback is beyond me, considering every coin must look significantly worse in hand. There's an inexperienced buyer born every minute though, so they'll stay in business. Ebay will likely never ban him due to positive feedback and sales numbers. Sadly all that can be done is sit back and watch the show.

I had already started a thread awhile back.

Anyone with common sense wouldn't purchase from this guy.

Oof. That is quite an ugly photo for sure. I wouldn't list that photo even if I were trying to cheat the customer.
