    I think we did start a thread on contemporary counterfeits I have Coleman and the more advanced book by R Moore et al which I'm using now a lot for research I agree they are fascinating but complicated but let me know if you need me to look anything up. Happy to help

    No not really been in a bit of a selling mode and been buying art it's easier to see and doesn't need a microscope. I had to get all my windows and doors replaced so sold a few rare pennies half pennies. Hope you are well.

    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    thank you for helping him out The issue seemed to be that the Grading company had limited capacity to work out a tooth from a bead . But once the gospel is set in plastic iti s hard to speak other than their written word... the worst one I had was a beautiful 1837 penny which was slabbed in fact a half penny..... you just can't get the staff.... Merry Christmas all

    more FAKES

    Ebay seem to be getting a little lost with their reporting . I saw a seller the other day selling an 1882 penny no H and an 1850 shilling. All shilling fakes from china have a flaw on the right ride of the acorn wreath half way up ..the copies are quite good and when you get them they obviously are not silver... however I had a message saying that the report had been checked by an AI investigative tool and found "not be in violation of the listing policy " rather silly really because if they could grasp that these flaws exist they could learn by experiences when something looks like a fake it usually is one ...the audacity !!!!LOL that the machine new better than MEMEME !!!!!LOL Merry Christmas everyone

    Cannot think where best to get the opinion of you experts but please let me know your thoughts. I have tried to help the seller https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/176062629565?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&mkrid=711-127632-2357-0&ssspo=OgrcZPeFTfi&sssrc=4429486&ssuid=h5XdnfNFTNi&var=&widget_ver=artemis&media=COPY Sadly he is using yet questionable evidence of another error from PGCS . Drop him a message if you can be bothered . Thank you
