Below are the sellers pics from ebay followed by my pics after the item arrived. If it looks too good to be true well, I guess it is.
When I first opened the box I was rather pleased but then I started looking closer and closer. Then I realized his pics are photoshopped easy to see on both sides, at least with a loupe. My pics aren't the greatest but...
Then the more I touched the ender (obverse) the more it lost its toning so, apparently the enders got an airbrush tan as well.
So then you can see the remnants of the tanning in the creases of the end of the paper roll.
Which made me think well, maybe its original and I should go ahead and open it and maybe just maybe its authentic on the inside.
But then I thought about how much I paid and the strange secret bidder that kept raising the bid after each time I did along with the previous stated facts. Realizing I had also placed a bid on another of his items a few days back and only bid once and magically it never seemed to go up again. Had I bid again I'm pretty sure it would have.
The reverse coin showing on one side is clearly a different coin (pure laziness) while I believe the other end showing a obverse is the same coin photoshopped a little harder.
Before I give him up (as if the pics wouldn't do it) what should I do? He has a 14 day return policy.
So, would you open or return?
Thanks for your consideration.
