It's a real stunner! Had to hold myself back from bidding on this one. "for the avid collector"

Honestly Coinfrog, eBay is so full of them lol. I usually just skip past them but that one was a real stunner lol. It is annoying because it makes browsing harder than it should be, but they do give you a good laugh sometimes. Here is another.

Not sure if you are serious about this. Many warning signs. The obvious being that it is NOT a proof coin. That was reserved for the Philadelphia mint only. Next, the grade this seller attached. It is a very-fine at best, not gem uncirculated. Nor does it have a cameo contrast. I won't go on because, hopefully, you'll see that it would be wise to pass this one by. In fact, run!

This is a real 1939 cameo proof. Rare and pricey as such.

Don't forget this same seller's not 1, not 2, but 3 of the rare 1919-VDB. No that's not a typo.

No, I certainly haven't!


OP's coin maybe for the rabid collector, but not for the avid collector.

They would sell faster if he added "sold out at the mint".

Obviously, it comes from a parallel universe, where San Francisco started making proofs in 1938 instead of 1968, and "deep cameo" translates to "dull and worn"!

Crooks like this need to be dealt with harshly. Not a laughing matter

Nice job reporting. Only wish I got here early enough to have witnessed this "stunner" but I'm guessing it's nothing I'll really miss.
Apparently it only took two (2) minutes between coinfrog posting it had been reported to his thanks to Andy. Pretty good response time.

EDIT: It was gone when making the original reply. Well Done.
