Lots key points are off with this one,
The mint mark looks more like a poorly formed road, (two lanes for its entire route)
Look at Lincoln's throat :s
The reverse,
The "N" in UNITED is wrong,
The period following the "V" is to low to the rim,
The period following the "D" is to close to the "D"
etc......

    @MarkW63.... Have you kept count of how many you/we have identified and had removed?? I know it has been a substantial amount. Cheers, RickO

    I'm going to say on a rough count probably 130+ I've got 168 threads (discussions) and most have been phony SVDB's and 14-D's but if you were to count some of my threads were the seller had several listed counterfeits then that number would be a lot higher. A couple of sellers were located in China and we busted them as nothing but ebay counterfeit distribution centers :D There were a few days that we worked on three fakes in the same day, which was a lot to ask from our small group, so, there were a few fakes that got taken care of using other avenues (not very many).
    As fast as this one got removed I'm thinking the the forum "Powers That Be" (Background Channels) might have install an Ebay Fake Coin Direct Hot Line :D

    Good question, I've never seen one reappear when the seller takes them down, but! that's not the case when ebay has to remove the listing. I've seen maybe three or four show back up three times, a few more doubles.
