    Sadly, they won't always be this easy to spot. The "Morgan" on the label and strange 4 small prong gasket are a dead giveaway.

    Thanks for the continued updates and efforts. :)

    Sadly, so many collectors are not aware of the details in holders and even finite coin details to spot some of these fakes. Thanks for pointing it out and the pictures. Cheers, RickO

    Wow, these Chinese counterfeits are getting slick! If not for the "Morgan" on the label, I would not even have questioned it. This slab would fool a lot of people for sure.

    The cert is for an 8TF, but the coin in the holder (also likely a fake) is 7TF. The 4 prong gasket is wrong too.
