The coin photo was lifted from the Gelos auction of March 18, 2006:

No activity on this account for more than 6 years and the seller is now offering coins for a fraction of their worth. An obvious hijacking and reported to eBay.

 

The two other coins offered by this seller are no doubt similar in nature.

Interesting fact - according to the listings, the seller accepts PayPal (?!).

However, when I asked him directly, the answer was NO. He "would prefer " bank transfer :ninja:

I guess it is obvious (as Mr Julian mentioned above) that the account got hijacked and is abused.

I have also reported to Ebay.

Bob, here is another fake 12 Rubles platinum. I have seen so many of these lately. This one is already up to $202!. I have complained to Ebay twice on this auction, and they have so far done nothing. Perhaps if you added your voice. The seller says he, "...is not an expert in coins." I mentioned that, if he were really sure he had a genuine coin, he could send it for grading to PCGS or NGC, and, if genuine, it would be worth thousands of dollars. He replied, "...what is PCGS and NGC?"

 

Here is the auction:

I have seen numerous copies of this fake on eBay, both the German and U.S. sites. I will complain again about this piece and perhaps have better luck this time!

 

If you check the high-value Russian coins from this seller, most appear to be fakes, except perhaps the 1899 5 roubles:

Interestingly, I hold this coin, but supposed to be a genuine piece, yesterday on the preview for the upcoming major auction. The ring of the edge seemed to be flatened / grinded down on both sides. Very surprising for the coin never been in circulation and supposedly existing only as novodels. :ninja:

You have ,probably, seen a unique piece ;) It is really interesting. However, the most interesting part of your posting, in my mind, is that a major auction presents it !
