Man alive, some of these earlier posts had me laughing so hard..., I couldn't stop...the of ignorance at times. When people don't do coins, amusing things begin happening...
Yeah, those Etsy listings at times are insane enough to make me want to contact the seller to just let them know that they don't have anything special. Else this happens ...

There is currently a fun thread on a just-closed ebay auction for a fake 1896-S quarter that some poor individual payed out 998.00 bucks for it. There were 17 bids total from 5 different bidders...this definitely fits the bill for this thread...

There are loads of overpriced British 1971 decimal bronze coins on eBay but you don't often see an Extremely Fine specimen...

Superb photography, and it's the ultra rare variety of 1971 2p with a 9 instead of a 1 for the last digit of the date!

Zero feedback as a seller. I guess you have to start somewhere...

Oh ouch. I wish there was a more comprehensive way in which eBay could root out fakes. Really sad that someone is out a grand like that. Do your due diligence and don't buy raw if you don't have the experience or expertise.

Some people never learn...

One wonders if the same person would try to sell a small candy bar for 85,000 or a cheap second-hand car for 112,000,000...

But at least the seller lets a potential buyer know that "This 2p coin will be cleaned thoroughly before being bought."

So, it's got that going for it!

Who knew that by stamping a little symbol in the corner of a tatty 20 note you could make it so valuable?

This seller, valerihernnande_0, has (and has sold) several 1944-S Steel Lincoln Wheat Cents. They even have a 1974 Aluminum LMC for sale at $1000. I checked out the other coins they have and I can't seem to find a true rare coin or error. Here's a couple of examples.

224219392655
224287305627

224261804181 Sold listing, doesn't look real.
224238212745 Sold listing, is this fake? No detail in eagle's feathers.

Looks like she's sold at least 6 1944-S "steel cents" for as much as $600 each and has only 1 negative feedback. smh

This seller has some extremely off the wall claims behind his coin listings....Major Damaged coins and claim them to be "Rare Errors", the Copper Roosevelt dime really takes the cake....but I most certainly like this "1944 Wheat Proof No S Mint Mark".

This guy has no clue that there were not any Proof coins minted in 1944, and the Lincoln Cent in the picture is just a regular Philadelphia minted Lincoln. From the amount of dirt under his fingernail, he must have been sorting through thousands of Lincolns before finding the "44 Proof" LOL

Please take a look at his other coin listings for a good laugh. I'm not sure if these listing were created out of a complete lack of knowledge, or trying to be a scammer.
