    So long as US collectors tolerate counterfeit and unmarked "replicas" from any source and in any form, the problem will continue to grow. At some future time, confidence in coins offered for sale will become so low that potential collectors will ignore the hobby and many true hobbyists will drop out. Every hobby and business in numismatics should be aggressively targeting and prosecuting this class of scum - anywhere, everywhere.
