Suspected Fakes on ebay

Postby revilord » Wed Apr 24, 2019 9:53 pm

I have not an expert on coins but today I searched 1935 JOP dollar. One jop version #1 came up and something seemed off. The JOP seemed to etched into the coin. From the image the etching edges seemed much shinier than the rest of the coin. The placement of JOP was higher over the date than on other pictures and the font was slightly different. So I checked the reviews and there were six. Two of the reviews were negative saying that they were sent different coins than they were as sold. The coin was selling for $1255 or something close to that but the description for it was very spare. Something like “nice rare JOP”. Finally it was not certified. This all leads me to believe this is a fake. I want to report it to eBay but as I say. I am not the expert and I could be completely wrong.

What would you do? Leave it, report it? Talk to some of the experts?

Not unusual for counterfeits to be sold on eBay.
Can you post the item ID (The 12 digit number at the top)
so we can take a look at it. There are 4 or 5 different
variations of the JOP signature.
