This written description entertained me this morning. Seller knows what it is and doesn’t know what it is—in earnest; may not be a good seller name, either. (Seller ID not shown).

    There are many like these on all selling sites, hardly worth calling out. Buyer beware and do due diligence.

    Ask the seller how many they want at $15ea shipped.

    Just major PMD, but scammers try to sell these on many sites... some are not actual scammers, just uninformed and excited. But many are phonies. Cheers, RickO

    They need to pull clear spam listings.

  • BStrauss3BStrauss3 Posts: 3,035 ✭✭✭✭✭

    The problem is that it's subjective. It's clear to us, listing by listing, but it's not something you can easily train an artificial stupid to do.

    I shall not today attempt further to define the kinds of material I understand to be embraced within that shorthand description; and perhaps I could never succeed in intelligibly doing so. But I know it when I see it ...

    But the seller states it has a clear clash and a doubled nose - well, after all, today is 4/20 B):D

    And nearly $14 for postage/shipping. I love it when sellers try to rip you off there as well.

    a one cent starting price might get a bid if they lower shipping to free

    Forget the coins, forget the prices; it’s in the words:

  • logger7logger7 Posts: 7,954 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Numismatics and the selling of collectibles has just become more discriminating with buyers seeking out value, most all know what they are buying. No one gets fooled by bad listings and the seller gets a black eye and loses credibility.

  • FrazFraz Posts: 1,543 ✭✭✭✭✭

    It’s the funny words; the inventive numismatic locutions. There is nothing serious any one can say about these auctions, outside of mental illness, or flat out economic despair.
    Yes, they are crednaughts.

    I like his explanation, not quite exotic, not quite sublime, but not as mundane as a garbage disposal.

    Seller did not use the word “dye” in error.

    A diamond!:

    MAGA? Is that sales shorthand? I miss the obvious.
    (Do not imagine that this is a political post. What the devil does MAGA mean in this context?)

    Shipping is ungodly, too.

    'Flooting roof' (Purposely miss-spelled), go search on ebay and see 9 pages of multiple sellers with little or 0 feedback wishing they'll cash in on this error.

    The more qualities observed in a coin, the more desirable that coin becomes!

    Demand is up; only one flooter left—pages of floaters, though.

    But, as I looked for a flooter offer, I found the one that I have been seeking:

    A filled D no mint mark!

    In addition to these, don't you just love the items that are like: "1944 Wheat penny, ultra rare, hole filler, perfect coin for an experienced collector(how does an experienced collector buy something like this anyway ?) only 1 left in stock. Only $276,190.53 :D

    It’s fascinating behavior, there’s hundreds of those offers.

    Entertainment, but sadly... someone will buy this eventually.

    I am a newer collector (started April 2020), and I primarily focus on U.S. Half Cents and Type Coins. Early copper is my favorite.

    And the tears you shed will not be tears of joy.

    The coin in the Spanish offer back there has a “death clash”. That’s pretty cool.

    Numismatic terms become meaningless buzzwords with these imps.

    If you wait you can find an accented hair buffalo nickel.

    This could hypothetically exist(and probably does somewhere):
    "Ultra Rare: 1971 Kennedy Half Of a Dollar, Rare Rotated Reverse/ Back, Odd Sound When Dropped, Breaks Open Like A Magicians Coin, But I Think That It Is Real:$75,000.03" In reality, it is a magicians coin, no way it is real except to someone who believes everything they hear/see. :D

    PMD is an asset in this place.

    Some of the folks who post damaged coins to the forum do not figure out what PMD means.

    They fail to list the types, dates, and mint marks in the titles. These are quarters
