A bad fake:

The seller also has a poltina of Catherine I which does not look good.

 

The seller has been notified about the 1823 piece.

Interesting stuff ... his images are all in a publicly accessible directory here:

His pictures

 

Not many of them are of coins, though. Looks more like an "odds & ends" antique dealer to me.

The seller has posted the SAME coin again for sale:

The first sale (in September) resulted in feedback but now we see the identical coin offered once more. This is interesting in view of the fact that all sales are "final."

I missed another sale of this SAME coin by the SAME seller:

How many times can you sell the same fake coin?

As many times as you can find a naive buyer?

 

Until the counterfeit dies in your basement shatter from use?

 

Until the cows come home?

 

As long as you pay your ebay fees?

 

This is not quite the case. Both of the previous 'buyers' are possibly shills since this is the exact same coin and not just another piece from the same counterfeit dies. It appears that the seller was trying to entice bids with shills but this did not work.

I assumed the seller was simply re-using the same stock photos to sell multiple examples of the same fake without considering that the buyers might be shills. :ninja:

 

But your suggested scenario seems more likely to be the case. ;)
