STRONG REVERSE? That was what turned a lot of you off with this coin was the WEAK looking reverse? PCGS is saying it's a STRONG reverse and Counterfeit! On to the BATTLE with eBay and PayPal to retrieve refund! Thanks everybody!
As others have said in posts I have read before it is ok and even recommended to ask the family here about any key purchases before hand very hopeful you get a return and not a lesson sarge this kind of thing should be criminalised as counterfeiting if someone can't print a $5 bill with a face value of five dollars why is it that every day counterfeit coins can sell for hundreds even thousands of dollars with no consequences from the secret service. Granted they can't get the manufacturers mostly in China or korea probably but there are americans passing these trinkets off on major auction sites with paper trails and red hands why no prosecution forget a refund until the government grows interest in stopping these forgeries form transferring hands we must be diligent and stick together in our collective knowledge.

I just found this thread, and decided to scroll through the pages. Sorry about the bad news Sarge. But I think just about every collector will make this kind of mistake at least once in their collecting career. Keep on trying and you'll eventually pull the trigger on the right coin.
