Bobby, am I imagining things or did Ebay once (or maybe still does) have a policy against selling sight unseen (AKA grab bag) items (which this seems to be)?

Then you just perpetuate the problem. Return it and wash your hands of it is my advice. Do you really want to be associated with selling this kind of crap?


Totally agree. If the seller wasn't making money from the scam they wouldn't be doing it.

Morgan roll of culls, $375 - subtract the two end coins, $37.50. Plus the two ends $140 even if they are not cleaned /damaged on other side puts you in the hole around $400-$500. Pass it along and damage your feedback, risk freezing your PayPal account for a few $$$, or getting scammed yourself, not worth it.

Edit, it says BU, so figure a roll of BU $500, still they make a good profit.

The whole roll thing is a scam, but for some reason everyone keeps buying into it.

Think about it, its like centales on ebay, he posts those ICG coins with the head line VALUED at whatever, usually $600 to $700 more.

If thats the case, why wouldn't he take advantage of his own offer?


Same thing here. On these coin deals, sometimes common sense is right out the window lol.

1st off , you have ask yourself why are the 2 end coins blast white, if they have been sealed in a roll for over 100 years, they would certainly be heavily toned..

2nd , if you had blast white unsearched rolls with a CC, mint mark showing you would almost certainly want to see what others were in there..

3rd, the seller offers you the chance to cancel the transaction, because they know they can resell it, and for probably more money than you paid for it..

check you tube, for some videos of the people who have purchased these such rolls and what was actually inside..

Seeing and reading some of the seller feedback...I would have stayed away........very far away...crack it open....good luck...reselling would be dishonest unless you stated how you came about the roll...IMO

This is a typical Ebay scam item.


Agreed, I've seen videos regarding this type of bank roll scam. Pretty much guaranteed to be all common dates inside. The supposed bank rolls are all made by the seller. I would return it for a refund if I were you.

Return it and be done with it. This is more trouble then it's worth.

What I don't like is that if the roll is opened you can't return it. Total crap shoot.

Judging by the photo I'd say the roll is from the 20's, perhaps even as late as the early forties. Chance are there's a mix of Peace dollars in there, if not the majority. That said, I don't think you did bad at all.

Those youtube videos are really entertaining. Most of them are for "unsearched" Wheat cent rolls, but there are a few dollar videos. In both cases they're what you'd expect to find in a roll, even a truly unsearched one. Common dates.

When wheat cents were circulating in the early 60's I can remember finding 1919-P's, but never found a key date ever. People avidly filled their Whitman albums back then, and to find a key would have meant searching thousands of rolls rather than my school milk money.

Regarding dollars, the appearance of an uncirculated cc at a roll end is a 100% guarantee that the roll is not old. Prior to the 1972 GSA release, uncirculated cc dollars were a specialist's dream. Now there are millions of them - far more common than circulated cc's. These coins were sold one at a time, and NEVER went to any bank to be rolled.

your better off making your own rolls
I have some Morgan rollers I bought from a bank liquidation several years ago... they're just sitting in a drawer, but I tested them when I bought them, they make nice shotgun ends.
