Careful with eBay Certified

Of course we all know that anyway. But here is one that I reported to both eBay and NGC minutes after it listed. The tag looks up just fine, but the fool who made the slab (presumably the zero feedback seller) failed to appreciate that NGC has the real coin on their lookup page, which also sports a nifty relative die rotation.

It looked wrong to me on two fronts. The first is the grade on the tag does not match expectation on the coin. The second is that it would be a new die pair as well. That is what actually got my attention. It is a fake.

Here is the lot. eBay will not remove it. NGC probably will not read my message until next week, but presumably before the 7-day auction ends.


Compare that to the NGC actual coin.


Maybe if more report it, the sale will get shut down and maybe the seller booted.
