Fake 1906 poltina on eBay


Recommended Posts

I still contest that the slabs are not legitimate. They look...misaligned. Maybe it's just me being paranoid, but I don't believe them either. Also why are they all MS-67 and all from various agencies...meh.

I noticed this on ebay: http://cgi.ebay.com/Replica-1913-russia-50...emZ260550425952


It's listed as a replica, no one is trying to pass it off as a real one, but I posted it here for people to see because there's an important detail that the auction ad has: pictures of the edges on these fakes.


I haven't seen many pictures of the edges on the fakes, which bothered me because I never knew how good or bad they could be. Well, the pictures finally show a few edges in one picture, which is nice to have here permanently for anyone to see. You can see the terrible Russian "3" in "zolotinka" and the horrible lettering in "Chistovo", even has letters missing.
