    The images are very low-res and I can't tell for sure what you're seeing. Please enlighten me.

    I'm seeing a lot of ebay vendors that dont usually sell coins selling coins. I've seen stuff like this from storage units or in large lots. It seems... just guessing here... they dont take the time to vet the merchandise they get and simply list it individually on ebay. Some, like the Dollar listed here, are super easy to spot... just look at a Redbook... others, unfortunately, are really tricky and the counterfeiters profit. We've managed to get quite a few bogus coins removed from the marketplace but like its already been said... like playing a game of whack-a-mole...
