I have bought from DNW a few times, and have been generally happy. I purchased a pricey (not U.S) coin at this particular auction. Upon arrival I noticed the coin had a defect which was not mentioned in the description, and DNW was very for forthcoming in returning the purchase price in full. Full apologies and no loss to me. Based on this I will continue to buy from them in the future.
I am mentioning this in case the OP may want to return the coin - If the argument is good, I feel confident DNW will accept the return.

I don't believe there is a need to return the coin it was a reasonable purchase and in all fairness, DNW did disclose their suspicion of the unnatural tone. But I do agree, their reputation is excellent and thus far my experience with them in the multiple auctions I've purchased from them is very favorable. If it is not a secret, what lot did you purchase in this auction - I am curious to see if we went against each other. I walked away from this auction with 3 lots, the flowing hair, 1790 Netherlands Florin, and an 1804 Great Britain Trade dollar. I must have bid on at least 50 lots though (most low balls with about 10 being serious bids that I lost by 1 increment) - this was a very exciting auction with some pretty incredible lots up for sale.

I collect U.S coins as well, but did not bid on any of them at this particular auction. This time I focused on ancients, and managed to win a very scarce (and quite expensive) roman denarius. As I mentioned, it had a planchet issue which really bothered me, and was only visible upon close examination. Returning it was not a problem (besides the anxiety of sending back such an expensive item through the mail!)

While I've no experience w coinex, I've been to coin shows and auctions in South America & am a member of the Brazilian primary numismatic society.

Major collecting interests are Latin America & Brazil, although I always look for classic US types. I've never seen anything being given away in foreign countries. It's too easy to just send stuff into to major US auctions for US coins and also for foreign when their national markets are too weak.

The best I can do is to buy what I like and can show off & also what I think will eventually be worthwhile. I love the US Flowing Hair pieces (dollars & halves) but unless confronted with "unacceptable problems" these types are simply out of my price range. Once I was offered a slabbed 1795 half by a dealer who told me "you really should buy this coin" but unfortunately I didn't take his advice. Also at the time I was starting a new business and buying [for me] an expensive coin was not good at the time. Oh well we all have the fish that got away...

Should update my profile as I'm back in the US now.
