1. Tuesday on Tap, showing some initial weakness in metals as it takes a breather from yesterday. The dollar had a rally yesterday that fizzled with no follow thru this am that may lend addn'l support. Oil is rebounding back above $30 and trying to hold above that, but it seems as though there are some determined sellers who keep attempting to put it under.

    So I got this email from eBay today; removed 8 of my listings:

    Unfortunately, we had to remove your listings because of the following:

    Referencing price guides or including estimations of value is not permitted when selling coins that are ungraded or graded by unrecognized coin grading companies.

    We appreciate that you chose to list this coin on our site and we realize you may not have been aware of these policies. All associated listing fees have been credited back to your account and we put a copy of the listing in your My eBay > Unsold Items list. You may relist this coin but you will need to make sure it does not include references to price guides or value.

    Please note: violation of this or other eBay policies may result in forfeit of eBay fees on cancelled listings, limits on account privileges and account suspension.


    My sin? I listed an Eisenhower Dollar as having a face value of $1, 10 Eisenhowers having a face value of $10, 20 Eisenhowers with a face value of $20, and my set of 24 Halves 2000 - 2011 P&D with a face value of $12. I guess PCGS, NGC, ANACS, or ICG are the only ones that can determine the face value of a coin.

    And who are they to determine what grading companies are acceptable and what aren't. Let the market (and price) make that determination. Personally, I won't pay a dime extra for graded. How about they stop going after me for saying my $1 coin has a face value of $1 and go after those $#^$! Chinese fakes. Oh, I guess $10 for 10 Morgan Dollars is perfectly ligit.

    Ebays just keeping you honest
    Your dollar is only worth what? about $0.80 cents today

    If you actually get a dollar for your dollar, the goverment would probably want you to pay a tax on the 20 cents interest you made :D

    If you're selling on ebay then you have to play by their rules.

    Yeah, I know. And unfortunately, they have a pretty solid corner on the market. Doesn't mean I have to like it. Just like I don't like the choices we have for Tuesday, I'll have to live with the results even though I won't be happy.

    Absolutely certain...I edited out some of the email, but here it is in it's entirety. They specifically reference the FV and told me when I called to just remove the reference. I relisted everything with the only change the removal of the FV and all is good.

    You recently listed the following listing:

    230869816945 - Lot of 10 Circulated Eisenhower IKE Large "Silver" Dollars, $10 FV (no silver)
    230869817133 - Roll of 20 Circulated Eisenhower IKE Large "Silver" Dollars, $20 FV (no silver)
    330816021809 - Roll of 20 Circulated Eisenhower IKE Large "Silver" Dollars, $20 FV (no silver)
    330816022208 - Lot of 10 Circulated Eisenhower IKE Large "Silver" Dollars, $10 FV (no silver)


    Unfortunately, we had to remove your listing because of the following:

    Referencing price guides or including estimations of value ($10 $20 FV ) is not permitted when selling coins that are ungraded or graded by unrecognized coin grading companies.

    We appreciate that you chose to list this coin on our site and we realize you may not have been aware of these policies. All associated listing fees have been credited back to your account and we put a copy of the listing in your My eBay > Unsold Items list. You may relist this coin but you will need to make sure it does not include references to price guides or value.



    Graded coins must be graded by one of the following authorized grading companies:

    -- Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC)
    http://www.ngccoin.com/
    -- Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS)
    http://www.pcgs.com/
    -- Independent Coin Graders (ICG)
    http://www.icgcoin.com/
    -- American Numismatic Association Certification Service (ANACS):
    http://www.anacs.com/

    If the coin isn't graded by one of the companies listed above, it's considered raw. Raw coins can be listed as long as:

    -- A numeric grade (such as MS-65 or VF-25) isn't in the title, description, or item specifics of the listing.
    -- No estimate of value (even if personal opinion) or reference to a price guide is included in the title or description.
    -- The listing includes a photo of the coin being sold. Images that are dark, out of focus, edited, or might be misleading aren't allowed. Also, stock photos aren't allowed.
    -- The starting, reserve, or Buy It Now price for the coin is less than $2500.

    What a maroon. There's over 19,000 auctions with silver face value in the title. Stamps do it too. It's only Wednesday, and I have dealt with so many dolts this week over and above the norm, if I was a conspiracy dude, I'd say there's something in the water...

    That's why I called them; I couldn't believe that could be the only reason. They confirmed I had to take out the $ FV. Oh, well. No big deal unless I end up with a moron who doesn't know the face value of 10 Ikes. My bet is they just got started on this and I happened to be first. Just seems to lack common sense.

    Quantity! I spend a few minutes doing it for fun (just relist over and over; takes 30 seconds on my phone). In three months, I've sold $1,250.00 in Ikes for $2,127.09. Plenty of profit; it's not like I'm trying to make a living doing this. I'll be turning the profit into a shiny new Beretta CX4; definitely not a bad freebie.

    And I agree they're crap coins...I wouldn't pay more than $1 for them, but hey - if someone else wants too, so be it. I'll take their money and make them happy.
