    The fact that the seller calls it one of a kind and gives a sob story...
    Well, it'll at least be easy to get a refund when you don't receive the penny obverse that's pictured :blush:

    The photos are not great. The all important obverse slightly out of focus, which is not good. The reverse photos are jokes. This is a pig in a poke.

    It looks to me that the obverse image is a photo of a photo. Anyone else view it that way?

    The photos of the reverse are from a person with no coin photography skills. I see unhappy results coming from this auction.

    Listing has been pulled... Did anyone get a screenshot of the coin? It is always good to help members learn from what we see. Cheers, RickO
