Still looks counterfeit to me.Interestin though.And a seller with zero feedback.I'll pass.

 

 

The scale pic - a nice touch. :ninja:

Yeah. I have no idea if it is authentic but there's no way I would buy a Trade Dollar in that situation. Too many fakes out there. Chopmarks and scale are interesting, though.

Gentleman/women, This is not new. Anything antique or collectable of value is being "reproduced". When in the biz. I subscribed to this newsletter to keep advised of the latest scams:

If someone can make money without working (hard) for it. they will. Mike

The plot thickens...I e-mailed this listing to a expert on Trade dollars. He feels it MAY be real, no guarantees though. the reverse matches a known variety.No feedback and China, it could be real and I'll never get the coin. Sometimes collecting is hard. When in doubt pass it up, I guess.

I wonder why?

Maybe Ebay has an application that autimatically cancels zero feedback coin auctions from China.
