PCGS Numbers

I tried looking up the PCGS number from a slab that is listed on E-bay, but the PCGS web site says" number not found."
What exactly does this imply ?
Fake slab or does PCGS sometimes report this incorrectly ?
This is the item in question

    While the coin is legit, you should not buy it and the seller sounds sketchy from reading the description.

    And to think there are only 60 thousand of those that are better. Just love the Christmas rush.

    The PCGS Cert Verification website was giving this response to ALL of its coins last night and earlier today. They were probably working on their site.

    Thanks for all the info, and yes I know it would be foolish to bother faking a slab for a 30 dollar coin but was wondering why the number didn't show up'
    I dont use the PCGS system very often, last time was several years ago and I remember all the numbers I was looking for showed up so this kinda confused me.
    As for my interest in the coin is that my Grandkids have evolved from sorting cents to being more curious about older coins.
    8-9 year olds think that Morgans are cool. " that's so big " !!!!!!!! They think I'm fibbing to them when I tell them people used to carry these in their pockets. Anyway I thought I'd buy them a few older cheap slabs that they can handle and show their friends and no worry if they get " lost"...
    Thanks again for setting me straight on the number thing

    You can buy Morgans raw (not in slabs) for cheap (at near bullion value) and it's no problem to handle them.
    Way cooler for a kid, because you can feel the weight.

    @BobSav May I suggest if you don't have already download the PCGS Apps, they are Fantastical. I use Set registry, photograde, CoinFacts , Price guide, and Coinflation. Love having all this information in my wee little purse :). Great for quick references and the Grandkids will relate to the tech side of coin collecting.

    Good deal buying starter coins for your Grandkids you must be an angel.

    Best place to buy !
