I just seen a few listing posted by the same seller, and all of them appear to be fakes. Watch out for the coins posted by this seller.

Here are a few examples:

That's just sad. What people will do to only make a couple bucks.

I sent the seller a message, hopefully they will take them down.

Could you tell me what it is that gives these away?

Looks like an acid test, above the eagle, 1882p, but the rest of tones/colors look OK?

could very well just be me!

The dates are all wrong, the coins have a grainy appearance, and the devices look "off"

Here's a quick comparison:

Sellers 1891 "Morgan"


Genuine 1891 Morgan (This is actually an 1891-S, but for this comparison it will work)

Here's an authentic 1891 Philadelphia. Obvious differences in the numerals in the date are pretty definitively diagnostic.

I love the mint mark on the 1882-O.

On the 1882-S the biggest giveaway to me was fuzzy detail in the hair of Lady Liberty. It looks like it should be well struck but it is still very blurry.

He did take end some of his auctions. He must have read and believed your message Banknotes. Sometimes I think even the seller is in the dark because they don't deal in coins on a regular basis, but most of the time it is just a straight out con.

Yeah, glad to see the seller did take a few of the coins down.

Hopefully he will remove the others as well.

So the eBay seller came on here and created a handle, and his post got edited... wonder if he was trying to defend himself, or... ?

No, he came on here like a thirteen year old spewing obscenities. He's not banned, if he can act like an adult he's more than welcome to defend himself.

Understood, was just curious why he would come on here and act like that... I'm assuming he wasnt trying to defend himself, but not sure what he would have to gain acting that way... even more odd for sure.
