Hope I got the link right.

At least two of his US dollars, his British Trade dollar and the French Indo-china Trade dollar are fakes. Don't know enough about the others to tell, but hopefully someone else here can tell.

Yeah, a rare 1865 Washington dollar. And don't forget the "Rare" 1906 Ellis Island Statue of Liberty commemorative dollar. I guess the Centennial celebration came after only 20 years instead of 100.

Just noticed the Hong Kong 1866 King Edward VII dollar. Bet that came as a shock to Queen Victoria. How can people bid on this stuff? How can someone sell these?

we know thisen aint real http://cgi.ebay.com/US-SILVER-DOLLA...EY_W0QQitemZ270527526952QQcmdZViewItemQQptZCoins_Bullion?hash=item3efcb27828 I would say they are all suspect and some are just down right fakes without a doubt. I guess the one in the auction I mentioned above is a real "Facsimile" coin but nothing made from the US Mint and I don't think any of the others are either

Does he get away with it since he's selling them under the "bullion" category?

Obviously they are all fakes and poor ones at that. But they are getting bids. I can not understand why. They are worthless - not even silver.

The thing I find hardest to accept is that eBay would not stop an auction like one of these - but will stop the same coins from being sold if they are PROPERLY identified.
My book on Counterfeit Portrait 8Rs is available from Amazon http://ccfgo.com/TheUnrealReales or from me directly if you want it signed.

That's because people would rather spend days complaining about it here than take 30 seconds to report the darn things and be done with it.

I am attempting to get ebay to remove the auctions. I wish the USA would do something about the lame Hobby Protection Act. Get a law like Canada has. It has worked here in regards to the Chinese fakes!

Oh, I just went and looked again. The "Washington" dollar and Statue of Liberty coins are gone. I can't remember for sure, but I don't think they would have ended yet. They must have made him pull them?
