Shocking behaviour...check out both images!

That IS a shocker. Mind you, the winning bidder at £330 deserves all they got if they didn't examine both pictures.

I used to feel sorry for them but not any more. So many of them are in the TSFE (Too Stupid For Ebay) box. :rolleyes:

Then if you click on 'see other items':

But, if you check out the feedback, buyers are happy enough so who are we, what's the use, etc. etc.

I can't get my head round people spending £300+ based on picture of just one side. :wacko:

It's not too much over melt and the reverse shows it to be an 1899P which invariably sells at a premium. Even if the obverse is a mess you can only lose 10 or 20 quid at the most. I don't think the vendor had much idea of what he was selling, o/w he would have put up a wrong image of an 1899 P.

It is weird isn't it - and that's far from the only instance.

There was a coin at a Spink auction a few weeks ago that only showed one side of a coin. I think that it was an 1826 proof penny, so not a cheap coin. Just seemed a bit strange to me.

Yes, I saw it. 

Be foolish to buy such a coin, as you never know what horrors lurk unseen on the other side.

I assume they would have supplied a photo if asked?

London Coins was prompt to email photos when I asked them. Likewise, I have got additional photos from Lockdales before.

Well, they should have put the photo on their website in the first place tbh.       But yes, they would have supplied if asked I guess.

Obviously they should have, and I wouldn't be very happy if I am the seller.

However, extremely frustrating to watch it pass nonchalantly across the screen, leaving one helpless to do anything much about it! A bit like being on planet watch, only to watch helplessly as we screw that up too 🙁
