*** Edited by Staff to clarify topic title. ***

Here is another example of an eBay seller pushing crap. Why eBay chooses to do nothing about removing these sellers is beyond me...

Quite the detail in that bronze reproduction... they even reproduced the impressive die clashes of the obverse. on the reverse, and the weak strike in the crown in the centre of the reverse.

I have posted the images here, so others can see after the listing is removed.

Pay attention to the die crack on the reverse at 7 o'clock and the scratches on the Queen's jaw and cheekbone on the obverse - I have a feeling we will see this one again...

The eBay listing admits that the pictures are "generic". So who knows what it would have looked like.

Working on the rest

This seller has more than one thousand fakes listed for sale.
About fifteen more Canadian and two hundred US coins and commemoratives.
All shipped to you directly from the seller whose name can't be mentioned.

"Dipping" is not considered cleaning...

They are being shipped from China by a seller on the site whose name can't be mentioned.
