I was very interested in this listing, but the more I look at it, it appears too good to be true. Does it look fake to you? Admin, please move post if not in correct location.

I don't know anything about these but it looks like a souvenir shop item to me. I'd ask for images of the edge to see if there's a seam.

Edit: Looking at Heritage, isn't the reverse supposed to say STELLA. with a dot and not just STELL? I don't see any on HA with only STELL.

I think this is as good a spot as any.

That's a fake for sure. Ebay has been flooded with fake state and colonial coins lately and people are bidding on them. There is a constant stream of the cheap souvenir type Continental dollar replicas that are actually selling. I keep reporting them, occasionally one gets pulled but not often.

It looks a lot like this known replica.


It will be removed.
