These coins are NOT marked or stamped COPY!
This looks like another source of counterfeit SVDB's!
They have 9 for sale!
Looking through their other items they have several other counterfeit "Fantasy Coins" not marked as COPY.

    Well He/She does post:
    "1909s vdb PENNY COINS - NOVALTY - FANTASY $8.50 EACH FREE SHIPPING. 1909s vdb WHEAT. MADE FOR GIFT, ART, JEWELRY, CRAFT OR KEEPSAKE. NO MONETARY VALUE - NOT CURRENCY"
    and has it for $8.50.
    BUT, as you stated the coin is not marked COPY and won't prevent a buyer from trying to sell it as the real deal. I doubt eBay will delete this auction even if it is reported.............

    EDIT: I'll be darned, listing removed - that's good to see........

    Look at this sellers feedback, I'd like to see something done with this seller.
    I mean some of there coins are just stupid nothing paper weights, but some are as good of some counterfeits that we've been working to get off the market!
    This he/she looks to be a counterfeit source.

    All of their "Fantasy" coins need to be removed.

    Keep an eye on the seller for relists. ;)

    The seller can describe the counterfeits however they want, but eBay will remove the listings in every case if they receive enough reports. :)

    To me the reporting of fake coins by members here is taking its toll on the fraudulent sellers.
    At $8.50 a pop and not several hundred dollars, is on its own a win.
    Unfortunately, many of those who buy these will post them as real.
    Their listings do show what items are fake and when you review their feedback, you can see who is buying them and which particular coins.
    This will help both track the fakes and the "new" seller who is listing them as real.

    Boy, a lot of the sellers listings are GONE!
    I just checked their other items and I found this Indian Head still selling!
    I put in a report, Same Seller!

    I could be wrong but I don't think the feedback page gives up that kind of info.

    Check out the seller's positive feedbacks.
    See who left this feedback and what fake coin(s) that they purchased.
    Make note of the seller's I.D.
    It is a trail that can be followed.
    Hope this helps.

    A lot of good work by forum members.... We have caused many, many bad coins to be delisted. Yes, they often pop up again, but hopefully - and IMO realistically, we are putting a crimp in the hoaxsters business. Cheers, RickO
