It is a shame people could end up paying so much for it and finding out later it is not real.

You can find copies like this one on Etsy for $12 to $25. And then some sellers that think it's real selling them for $50,000.

This is terrible. People getting scammed like this. Seems an obvious fake, but people try to take advantage of others all of the time.

They have added a bunch of marks to try and hide it but this is almost certainly a vampire hub fake. Of course the easiest way to tell it is a fake is it is based on the 1795 off-center bust variety (B-14) That was the only variety in the whole bust dollar series that had the off-center bust.

I missed that he said it was a quarter dollar, but I suspect it is actually a dollar because IS based on the 1975 B-14 dollar and I can't see how they could reduce the hub size down to quarter size. It also is NOTHING like the 1796 quarter.

Bust dollars (and all silver dollar coins before the Morgan type) are among the most heavily counterfeited coins in the world. One you shouldn't buy raw unless you know the dealer. I believe there are more fake Bust dollars than there are real ones.

Ever wonder how the Chinese became a world power in forty years instead of 100-200? No country goes from being literally on the verge of starvation to having the 2nd largest economy without playing dirty.
Currently interested in buying 1957 and earlier Russian and Soviet coins. Let me know if you have any and we can hook up a deal!
