I search eBay for (nice) coins. But when I saw this coin I felt inspired to start a new thread:


Worst Coins On eBay!

Play along and post your finds!


My first submission...was once an 1876 Sweden Krona:

So can I just post my collection here or do I have to put them on eBay first?

Just kidding but very interesting idea, just make sure the sellers don't know your posting their coins here...

I often see some real beauts on the 'bay. Play along if you like. For my part, I won't post any coins that have numismatic value.

This coin was once a 1894 o Barber dime, such a pity. :(

My hat to the seller for his honest description of that coin.
Obverse: "Everything is wrong with this coin" Holed, chunk missing, and corrosion everywhere.
Definitely in the top 10 worst coins on eBay, but at least the seller isn't hiding anything. The seller is actually trying to warn you on how bad the coin really is.

Justin,
The kindest thing for this dime is to send it to a melting pot.
I may have to start 'NOT liking' Barber coins such as this one.

You may have to change your signature to, 'I've only ever met one Barber coin I didn't like.'

This one keeps getting relisted (at least 6 times now), thankfully nobody is bitting...

A ground off reverse is not an error, and at $50.00 it's outrageously priced for a PMD coin, though I've seen worse on eBay this one is right up there.
