While looking at some medievals, I came a cross some listings by this seller that have me a bit leery. Feedback is high, but ...
Anyone have an opinion or experience?

Seems like the seller is genuine. Zero negative feedback and only 2 neutrals, one for a lost item which was refunded and another by someone who unfortunately is allowed to vote. I'd buy from them if price was right.

I'd be curious to get an opinion on the authenticity of his ancient and medieval silver (maybe I should have posted on the Ancients subforum).

I have identified two fake medievals currently up for sale, and I wonder if there are more.

I don't like the look of the Saxon or Celtic coins. If you look up Series X type 31 Insular Style (Wodan head), you won't find a coin looking like that, or at that size and weight. Except on other eBay listings, of course.

Many of the coins aren't even identified properly, which is strange if you're selling coins that could be worth 100s.

I don't know much about Greek coins but the Aegina turtles don't look right.

The prices for all of these are way too low.

As I understand it, you can get all complaints about fakes removed from eBay if you refund the buyers who notice.

Thanks. Confirms my suspicions.

I was scanning eBay for Brabant medievals, and two of his coins showed up, clearly fake.

When I looked at his other stuff, it seemed a lot of the small silver types had the same look.

Serious? That makes a mockery of the feedback system and allows dodgey sellers to continue selling fakes with excellent feedback. In a way I'm not surprised though.
