This ebay auction is bid up over $500 at this point. My personal opinion is the coin is a fake. The fonts are all wrong and the coin just looks wrong. This is one of the classic rarities for Mexican Royalist coinage, this type of coin just doesn't show up on ebay with a 99cent starting bid listed by someone who claims to know what it is. Any other opinions?
