    If it was 67 in a case then AU $7800 is inline with recent auctions. Why no toning?

    It's probably been cleaned to make it shiny...

    Money-laundering, drugs or weapons..
    --
    One way that unscrupulous people are trying to transact with dirty money is to set up fake listings on eBay. It looks like a real transaction, but the price is usually astronomically inflated for the type of item, and the sales price does not make sense. Here is how it works:

    Let's say Jim has a customer who wants to buy something illegal, such as drugs, stolen property, or weapons. Rather than create a transaction with cash, Jim tells his customer he will set up a listing on eBay for a particular item at a very inflated price. He will then send a link to the item to the client. This is called a "prearranged sale."

    No one will actually buy the grossly overpriced item, and Jim's client will purchase it, sending the money through Paypal. Also, eBay gets its fees and Paypal gets its fee of 3 percent. Jim ships a box of rocks or some insignificant item to the client's address and no one is the wiser.

    Once the transaction has taken place on eBay, and the money is in Jim's account, he meets up with his client to deliver the actual goods which again may be drugs, weapons, or some sort of contraband. The transaction takes place, the money has changed hands, the illegal goods are delivered, and all of this is done under the radar.

    I messaged him because I was curious to see if he would respond, which he did.

    Hello, good day, Thank You for asking
    I found online and it was the middle price in this grade, the highest was over 100,000.00 in Us dollars.
    I set my minimum, prices increasing or graduating .
    Sincerely

    I don't think he knows what he is doing as the price he is talking about was from the PCGS website and that was for a slabbed coin. NGC have a more realistic price for that grade at $5k, also slabbed. He's going to be hanging onto that coin for a loooong time methinks.

    One off sale like this.... not much of a money laundering operation. $78,000 is petty crimes

    Besides in your scenario there is electronic record of each side of transaction.... Do this in real world with real criminals money, the idiot will get a bullet
