Wow scary. They are faking slabs,
They have been making fake slabs since 2007.
they are getting fakes thru the top TPGs into real slabs
For about 2 or 3 years now. Tere haven't ben a lot of them, but as time passes I'm afraid it's just doing to get worse.
they are counterfeiting $3 Buffalo nickels
Worse than that, you can actually buy fake 1956 and 1958 wheat cents. Coins that would retail for 5 to 20 cents.
I know that doesn't put your mind at ease, but it is the reality we have to deal with today. This spring a dealer showed me a complete set of Seated Liberty dollars
, circulated (no 70 S) in a Dansco album. Every coin in the set was fake, and so was the album. There are marketers online that will sell sets like this. Full sets of large cents, Half Cents
, Seated dollars
, Morgan dollars
and probably several other series.
