This is still a scam.
What idiot would pay over $90 for a fake coin unless they intend to pass it on as the real thing for full price of $130+.

SMH...scumbags.

I’m guessing those brass coins won’t ring true/sound like silver.

I'm wondering how/if they get the "white edge" look of a typical 90%

I'm tempted to order a sample to figure out how to test for these, but I would hate to do business with these scumbags. There's the rare earth magnet slide test, correct weight test, ring test, X-ray fluorescence, thickness check, what else?

Size, but in plastic that might be tough

I think PCGS would be all up in Ebays face for allowing fakes to be sold in PCGS holders

It will be, what, two years tops before we start seeing counterfeit copper pennies? But all this crap comes from China & counterfeit quarters is nothing to a society that will counterfeit cat and dog food with poison.

Copying coins and currency should be illegal.
It is here in the States, but we can't regulate Asian production of these Fakes.

Also, eBay still refuses to do anything about it since they make a lot of $$$$ of all the other droves of Chinese made goods (junk) being sold online.

That Cert # comes up on PCGS as a 1934 quarter

DYODD but I'll add, where are the SS??? It IS their area of 'expertise' and for years it would seem as if they've failed at their job

Dang, bro... OK, they are sold clearly marked as fake.

So Grandma comes waltzing in to the LCS and opens up the velvet jewelry box where she has a roll of 1933 uncirculated quarters. (She threw the stupid plastic containers in the garbage -- they were a dead giveaway)

In a darling creaky voice: "I've had them for my whole life. My mother gave them to me on her deathbed when I was a young girl. She said they would probably have some special value someday. And I have rent to pay."

The LCS guy goes nuts over this huge score/find. Gives her a fair price for the whole roll. Has them for more than a month before he finds out -- on his tenth sale of some -- that they are bogus.

What a loverly scenario. zip it::Yuck: I could write a book.

But I won't until alla youse bastages read my latest one. :Happy:

This picture shows a test on a vintage counterfeit (cast lead) 1877-S half dollar (note: out of balance):

Oh for Christ's sake, just buy circulated 90% silver. I haven't found a method of counterfeiting that can simulate 90% silver in circulated condition
