Laughable counterfeit 1955 DDO 1c

eBay # 152717347925.
Seller claims to have "found it roll searching." OK, lol
Also same seller "found" a 09-S VDB and 1922 no D "roll searching."
It's obvious that the reverse of the 1955 pictured isn't the same "coin" as the phony baloney obverse.
It already has an $800 bid. Wow.

    Unfortunately, one man's crude counterfeit that should not fool anyone can be extremely deceptive to another man. :( Thanks for the post!

    You're welcome.......I have reported it.
    I am sure his 09-S VDB is also fake, but the pics are too blurry for me to tell, but I have reported this coin.

    Pretty funny...both the coin and the text later in the auction listing.

    I see one bid from the same guy on each of his three fakes. A shill, no doubt.

    Looks like a coaster to me. :D

    It's a poor copy but I can see someone buying it.

    I can't see anyone who's ever even looked at a Lincoln cent bidding on that. Super bad.

    With that look in Abe's eyes he looks a little "stoned".

    There are a bunch of roll searchers on Facebook but this one hasn't surfaced in the usual places. Admins probably headed off the posts.

    I think this might be a better picture of it. I added this to my "rouges gallery" or "virtual black cabinet" in 2011.

    That is a joke.... Anyone who even glances at his/her change should be able to see that is a caricature of Lincoln....Cheers, RickO
