Anyone brave enough to bid on this 1909 VDB S

5 posts in this topic

Below is the link and can see that there is one Ebay dealer placing a bid on it.

 

I cannot tell by obverse but the reverse looks like it is real, as always it is too hard to tell from the pictures and the guy selling it only has 7 Feedbacks.

It still is a pretty nice looking coin though.

 

I still cannot get that brave yet!

I did not look at those 7 feedbacks very well at first, but the last one was a whopper that looks like there was some help with a 1795 Dollar!

 

Do you think that he had some help (Below)

You would think that this would raise a flag with ebay, but then again I think they would actually have to care first?

I know that we all have to start off low and build the numbers on ebay.

 

I don't think I could ever bring myself to bid any big dollar amounts without the coin being in one of the big TPG slabs.

 

Too many nice coins of that caliber floating around out there slabbed, taking the worry out of such a transaction.

 

I would pass on that particular coin if I was in the market for one.

This is not a slam on you, but I think that "idiotic" is a better word than "brave" in your statement above.

 

-Raw, key date coin that is highly counterfeited

-Feedback of seven while having been on ebay for over two years

-Image of the obverse, so as to examine authenticity, too small

-Reverse image taken at angle, which makes diagnostics of VDB more difficult to examine

-Coin is sold "AS IS"!!! That means "NO RETURNS"!!!

 

Sure, the coin might be real, but I'm not going to be the one to find out.
