Item 133588122887

Would the American Numismatic Society be selling random coins on Ebay with a seller rating of "1" ?

Just seems odd

feedback of (1)

offers NO RETURNS (ebay/paypal would trump this policy for almost any reason)

you be the judge...

BUY with eBay knowing they have your back

SELL with eBay... different story

Actually, it appears legit.
I was doubtful at first but here's a link I found.

Makes sense to sell off low value common items and use the funds to support the society or make purchases.

Astute collectors do pretty much the same thing.... we call it thinning the herd!

Very strange, as a large and recognized organization, you would have figured that they would have approached Ebay directly and gotten some sort of special treatment (some sort of disclaimer, special symbol, template, etc), not just started a normal account with no feedback. Although very odd, does seem legit, as per the above article shared by @TNG. Also, worth a note that their description is a little underwhelming.

@John1, it is not the ANA. It is the ANS (American Numismatic Society), which I admit I did not know exist until today.

And the ANS is the older of the two organizations having been founded in 1858. ANA was 1891.

Why not? What feedback rating did eBay let you start at?

I read the Op post too fast and ANA is in Colorado so I was ready to think this was a fake. I never heard of ANS so I learned something - thanks.

EDIT: oops, link already provided

oddly, their webpage does not mention the actual eBay ID, nor does the page currently link to the eBay listings.

A couple of affordable 1909 Hudson-Fulton Celebration ANS medals I have that are more common than most rather scarce issues they (had) made. http://beta.medallicartcollector.co...rollTop=1014

I called the ANS, and this is indeed their eBay account. They are just getting started with eBay.
They are going to fix their webpage to show the eBay ID, and link to their eBay listings.

ps. beautiful medals
