This seller is just one of many delusional sellers that think any coin they've never seen before must be worth a fortune.

A few weeks ago on ebay, I observed a seller selling a single Mexican coin and they were calling it silver (it most certainly was not) for about 300.00 bucks. It was a very common I believe an un-peso, and there was only one photo... They also claimed that 10% of the sale was to go to charity.

"Rare Liberty Coin"

Only $1220 and no bids - it was probably the $4.10 shipping that scared away most bidders

This one has been fun. I politely explained how the damage was caused likely from a coin rolling machine crimper finger, and I promptly got cussed out, and still believes the coin is a very valuable mint error....I'm really curious if everyone that explains the damage to him will get cussed out too....LOL What a hoot!

I didn't save the actual image that went with this text, but it looked something like this:


Listing description:
This is one of the extremely rare recently discovered US mint errors. This particular error has only been found in US Dimes and quarters. These are so rare that it has taken a group of collectors over 8 years of researching to finally discover the facts on and unraveling the mystery behind these coins. I am going to try not to leave anything out. The findings are from myself and from other resources found from other collectors.

believe it is in error , coming from the planchet roll . These are the tail ends of planchet rolls that are not flat and even with the same material . They put the Copper in the middle of the two other materials and you squeeze down to a certain dimension and as you keep squeezing and rolling you start to run out of the material at the end, it causes the uneven material,. Not acid damage , the coins would look really pale like a chalk color. I have a few Penny's that are acid damage, and they don't look like these Quarters.
(All of the people who have ever gave the BS acid damaged reason, none were ever able to give anything to back up their opinion. But I have done several experiments and proved it to be faults. Along with other obvious facts that makes the acid damage ruled out.)

Coins are normally struck inside something called a retaining collar which securely corrals the coin when being struck by the dies. The retaining collar helps form the coin's edge and implants the thin vertical edge lines (known as reeds) on various coins such as dimes, quarters, and half dollars. These retaining collars also help shape the rim of the coin.
The info I'm giving now, doesn't come close to covering everything, it can't, because it would be a book covering 8 years of discovery and research. But if you have questions I will answer.

Here are two more doozies on Ebay. A bsjjohn_4090 (among other overpriced things) has for sale this exact description: '1997 Washington quarter it has a double dye but is still a beautiful coin very r'. They are asking 1,500 bucks for it, and there are no takers.
Then we have an 11blanca12 who has up for sale a '1978 Washington quarter "DDO, very rare coin' and is asking 350 bucks for it.
I can confidently say these are not what they think they are.

LOL....I love it! Great find! After 8 years of research, I would think this guy would understand the minting process. I also love the part about collar and reeding. This one really takes the cake!

What was the point of his post? Was he trying to make a good story to sell his coin?

Nothing but another dark colored coin from the dirt. Even after explaining and giving him articles to read, the listing remains as an "Error Coin". LOL

I've tried the same thing a couple of times on coins I find on eBay. You're beating your head against a brick wall. Nothing will convince them otherwise.

After my laughter subsided, and I wiped the tears away....I knew I needed to share this one. Be sure to take a look at all the other absurd "Error Coins" that have been listed from this seller.
