    Why not link such listings so those who are interested in bidding or reporting them can find them much faster?

    Well now that we got the above comment posted herein out of the way, since it is a fake obviously, how does one have the B@@ls to put this in an auction and try to get two hundred bucks?
    dunno!

    Obvious counterfeit but he only needs to fool one person. Probably of Chinese origin.

    Thank you, I reported it and messaged the seller. However, it's usually quite a bit easier and faster for the person who has already pulled up a listing in order to to post about it, to share it with the forum.

    As he joined eBay on March 6, 2024 it is possible he will not return your message and perhaps is knowingly involved in skullduggery.

    But I like your open mindedness and trust in humankind. Looking for the good in others.

    I don’t send such messages, expecting to receive a reply or assuming that the seller is unaware. I send them, just in case. In instances in which a seller is a repeat offender, I just report the listings, without contacting them.

    I just love how pronounced the doubling is. There's no doubt that it's a doubled die!

    And WOW! A bonus.

    It's the rare raised mound version too!

    Amazing to have a type 1 mound reverse - should add to value >:)

    You beat me to it. Yes, a type 1 reverse on a type 2 1916. A really stupid fake😂😂
    It’s also grainy as all hell.

    The bitterness of "Poor Quality" is remembered long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.

    50% more value at least. Starting price should be more like $300.
