This one only qualifies because of the fact some moron not only got this coin graded, but trueviews as well. Like, dude! Oh, and to make it better he put a youtube video of the coin in the description to show how "nice" it really is.

This one kills me, it's not a clash, it's a screw that was pressed into the obverse of the shield with a vice or some pliers - repeatedly too. NOT a Mint Error. Already 3 bids too at least it's cheap - so far.

GrapeCollects, That video was gnarly dude. Schrooms have taken their toll. If it weren't for the sun in my eyes in the youtube, seeing the unicorns, pixies and fairies in the background would have been a bit easier.

In regards to the Two Cent Piece I posted I thought I'd better grab a photo and put it up as well because it will go away soon enough. Anyone ever seen such a bad attempt at faking an error on a clash?



There is nothing that even looks remotely like that on the reverse anyways. Clash my backside!

How about this "No FG" variety Kennedy that clearly shows a G that sold for $625.00?
https://www.PCGS.com/cert/37065650






Or this 1972-D slabbed as No-FG sold for over $2,250!




Remember that each of these (and many others shown in the report accessible below), according to the graders:


From the above it seems PCGS is claiming that 3-4 expert graders specifically having an expertise in Kennedy half Dollars will assess submitted Kennedy halves. It would seem we should believe the hobby experts using 3-4 trained graders, especially 3-4 trained graders with a specialty in Kennedy halves will obviously be able to identify major Kennedy half varieties.

So just how do these costly-to-faithful TPG collectors pass though this many graders/Kennedy specialist graders and enter the market?

While the grading companies are not selling these items - the grading company trained "expert specialists" produce these false items that people/auctions sell for bug bucks!

Many more in the report - download and read.

What?!?! You didn't see the movie where Sacajawea crossed the Atlantic and was made a princess? I haven't either....

Don't believe that I can top that one for absurdity, but this may be a bit different:

https://littlerock.craigslist.org/w...7470871.html

Offering to buy coins, but referencing a website selling Morgan replicas (that fact is buried in indirect ways in the text, if the pictures are not screaming "bad copy" loudly enough) at around $20 each? Could be a play where a low retail price is cited to justify a really low offer on the real thing? On the other hand, heaven help an honest would-be buyer if they think those things came out of the US Mint.

@Earle42 To be honest I don't understand at all how modern Proof quality coins can cost hundreds of dollars
