New eBay seller daaber61 (zero feedback, of course) has posted an auction with the title: "2 Gold 1968 Penny's. Test 10k acid test using yellow capped jeweler's test acid."

He claims, "Grand father found these years ago. I tested them using jewelry acid test kit. Holds at 10k. Rare indeed."

The starting bid is $50, but there's a hidden reserve... Of course, Seller does not accept returns.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/354143356440

I let him know about the mistake in his listing... that the title should have the word "Cent's" and not "Penny's."

Actually, to be 100% correct, it should read cents (not cent's).

Actually there are several methods to imitate the look of a "gold penny". Here is a link for a youtube video using simple chemicals and elements.

It appears he dipped the entire coin in the test acid.

The coin is "one cent", the name of the coin is more often "penny" (even the U.S. Mint calls them pennies).


These will be removed by eBay.

Ive been collecting coins for over 20 years. Ill be offering coins at a deep discount and for the most part, ungraded. If you flip coins, check back often as I will be selling excellent examples that are raw and ungraded.

But his 'store' is EMPTY!!
