https://www.ebay.com/itm/363574392657 The guy is asking 190.00 US for a 1996 Toonie and says it is graded PCGS?

Looks like he is a new seller with zero sales and the coin photo'd is not in a slab.

It looks like the coin spent weeks laying on someone's driveway or main road. My heavens, what is wrong with some of these sellers? Do they think that collectors believe everything that's in print on the computer like facebook, or snap chat or some other social media circus?

Not unusual. How about the lots 254536321461 363496387568 and all the "errors" that are not errors, just coins within production tolerance - like ALL offcentre sand colour shifts listed today.

In modern circulation coins anything that is offered for more than face value needs a critical eye: knowledge first.

(and don't get me started with twoonies NCLT, a world where silver worth on average 3X melt)

The 2nd Ebay link from your post above is asking over 100X face for the commonest toonie minted, let alone any shipping cost.

and the first link, asking for 250X(at least, it's a nice picture).

eBay is full of these things. I like to check the most expensive coins listed - usually among them, heavily circulated 2 coins. Right now you can have 124955799887 for 490,000, a bargain at that price.

I can only imagine stuff on the other categories. It is REALLY funny.

Wow! And he tops that by saying that he doesn't accept returns! Who's going to pay for the ice cube and 2 cents worth of butane?

Okie if you want some cheap entertainment do as t_y suggest.
Search ebay from highest price to low on a chosen denomination and you may see some ridiculous things.
