That's why for higher priced coins I want them in a PCGS or NGC slab.
Describe it as if there were no picture.

It is such a shame that we as collectors have to consider everything fake until we can prove otherwise. No doubt that counterfeiting even occurred in ancient times but the amount of them in the marketplace today takes a lot of enjoyment out of the hobby. I suppose it can be rewarding to one's self however in honing your abilities to detect such garbage. Only hope is that you don't make a costly mistake. While TPG's may be the way to go for key dates and high dollar coins, even this is no guarantee since slabs are now a target too. Just my opinion.
