Any 1893 s specialists in the house?

Post by JackBnimble01 » Sun Sep 27, 2020 12:45 am

This coin is in a pcgs holder
Graded au 50, and it’s priced
Very low, nearby..... My thought is it’s a fake?
Anyone have any thoughts?
I will post this ID number after
A consensus!
If this coin is fake is there any place
To report it?
Thanks

I don't see the gouge at the hair tip/end (which is the main PUP used on low grade specimens) so if its in a PC holder I'd guess it's a fake coin in a fake slab straight from Ali.

The real coin has 2 prior sales
Thru heritage! 2009 2011

I don’t like the look of the 3
So it’s fake?

After studying the bar codes
On the real and the fake
They don’t match either! Look
At the last 2 on the real coin
There are 2 lines underneath, on the fake there are 3 lines!
Glad I did my research and didn’t
Buy it!
Maybe the grading company’s
Should think about trying to protect
This industry by taking pics and
Not charging the customer, therefore placing an Added layer of security for the consumer? Sadly someone will get stuck on this coin, and it will continue onto the NEXT not informed
Collector!

PCGS has made it easier to verify authentic coins by adding auction appearances to their cert verification. In this case, it shows to links to two auctions that have the genuine article photographed.

His answer is one of the standard B.S. replies from sellers who know what's going on... and they always know.
Report the listing as a fake to eBay.
When in doubt... don't.

If he puts it back up there or elsewhere, contact the ACEF Anti-Counterfeiting task force.
