I relax on E-Bay Last night and look for St-Gaulden's I find amazing almost half of 1924, 1926, 1927 and 1928 fake. I want you to be aware of. Many are in slabs before 2014. First time I see those was an 1927 somewhere in 2013 end or begin of 2014. The coin was summited to PCGS for reclassification to PL. Some how the coin was questioned and go to Reserve Law Enforcement and come to my Lab. My report was clear FAKE. I give you a small photo and the big line to detect:
1. The back of the design is PL which never was on those coins.
2. The E as per photo. Same was use in 24,26,27 and 28 Strikes
I do not take no ID from eBay, not interested to download this scrap. Here the fake coin look are:
Sorry I can not publish my report, I am not the owner. Maybe PCGS, ANACS or NGC has more material on. Sorry I was do because many peoples go for those and will be an disappointed time to come.

The relief is lower, rim tool marks everywhere, also the letters have minuscule changes and orientations.

I do not doubt to day to grading companies are not aware. The big move with those was around 1974 1975. Do not understand me wrong. No TPG will certify those to day. Impossible. What was in time was in time and it is History. The problem is the selling platforms not TPG's LOL.

@ DEAR, my friend I see those because I look for some 21, 22 and 23. Then I fall on fake.

What I see last night was slabs with no TV and poor photos. If we do not know what to look for, then big surprise. Also no seller accept returns? LOL 2.2K no return? keep your coin.

I will look for others sources instead. I put because for those coins very few knows about.

Thanks Rob, In the next time to come I will try to put as much I can. Maybe in two years I will go away, but till that point the community has to know more about those mysteries. I can not publish the reports because are own by RLE. But I make aware the collectors about. The TPG's has theirs own data base but is not to share. I will choice what I can post.
