Fake 1889 CC Morgan please report

No need sending this seller a message, he is known to sell counterfeits and is aware they are not genuine. :/
He has been doing it for years and ebay has done nothing to stop him.

    It's really frustrating, but when anyone posts pictures in the webp format, I'm dead in the water. I can't save the images and use them for educational purposes, I have found conversion sites, but they offer no way to save the pictures, if they have been converted at all.

I am also collecting at least one coin for each Roman emperor from Julius Caesar to ... ?

    Bill, if on phone you can screenshot and save image that way, if on a computer you can shift,printscreen and save it that way. Dont know how to do it on a apple computer, but im sure theres a way.

    I was wondering what the webp was. So I clicked the picture and saved the image and it was saved as a webp - Now I know.

    I then clicked the picture and did a Open image in a new window / tab. The image in the new window / tab is a png (at least for this one but I suspect it could change to a jpeg or other). So when I clicked the image in the new window / tab and saved that image it was saved as a png.

    Don't know if you have that / this option.

    The biggest tell would be the bag mark on the eagles breast, it is a common mark found on overseas counterfeits.
    The coin they copied had a bag mark on the breast and it transferred to their die.
    There are other red flags like the numbers in the date and the obverse stars.
    The reverse feather details are weak also.

    Wrong reverse; used initially in 2018 on counterfeit 1881-CC Morgans and still is.
