Some of the stuff you see on Ebay...

This made me chuckle a little bit, so I just had to share it! Nothing about this auction is correct, except that it is actually an 1882 Morgan! :D

    Just someone copying a listing. Happens all the time. Seller probably doesn't even know what the letters and numbers represent. I've made the same mistake myself

    It looks like a fake.

    I noticed a few others that were very similar, and all sellers with (0) ratings, so you could be right.

    No feedback, cert is for an 1882 but his listed example shows an "S"...

    Amazing that eBay lets this happen

    There is likely nothing right about that listing since it appears to be a counterfeit.

    Ive seen it on ebay alot with the coins. Seller with no feedback, bin price of thousands for "rare" error or date coin. Blurry pics.

    I think theyre just fishing for a sucker.

    I'm thinking there are a lot of sellers with many sites on ebay rather than just one. I see too many look alike photos and wording of the auction that have to be the same seller.

    I skulk in the stank of those pages. It’s sick. A coin with a ding is a DDO and those folk are DDO freaks.
    Detsl-12 (0) analexa31 (0) —filter to their sold stuff—blank page, or, get this:
    every item is sold at asking price with one bid; but that ain’t the kicker, either: the sold items match the existing inventory.
    It gets bizarrer and bizarrer.
    Scores of “No mint mark” and “filled P”s ranging from cents to thousands and I figure that those folk are generally clueless. So I look at the other side of their coin. If you win a five hundred buyitnow DDO for one dollar and free shipping you get a refund from the seller.

    This is cheap clad. I see a lot of coins this way, though, and it sends me to the books.
