    This account "threetofu" has highly suspicious listings very similar (the same) to fakes i was sold a few years back:

    1938 Crown -- selling 2 with identical image.. both look fake
    China Fat man Dollar -- selling 2 with identical image.. both look fake

    http://www.ebay.com.au/sch/m.html?_...H0.Xsilver&_nkw=silver&_sacat=58520&_from=R40

    1822 GB Crown - selling 2 with identical image.. both look fake

    rest of the listings look ok.. be careful guys, as always do your own due diligence with your own fiat.

    Check out this seller (cheapgoldandsilver2014) his listing is " 2000 year of dragon " he selling these 1oz dragons coins they look good but don't have the $ value of the coin - so technically its not legal tender, this seller is from Thornlie in WA

    He has 3 separate listings , 1 of the listings he discloses it is copper the other 2 listings he doesn't.

    Sadly, there are 2 types of people on eBay who might be selling fake coins:

    Type 1: the person who doesn't actually realize that what he's selling maybe fakes. This person is ignorant.

    and

    Type 2: The person who knows he is selling fakes and will do it so long as he can get away with it. This person is evil.

    People just really need to educate themselves on what they are buying. It blows my mind when I see a seller on ebay with thousands of positive reviews and they are peddling all fake products. Not just silver or gold, I see fake designer jean sellers all the time and the buyers don't know the difference so pay hundreds for something made in china.

    Isn't this the second thread about these China Fat man dollars?
    What was the claim, that they were scarce?
    It's like a brandnew production batch has been delivered.
    I wonder what those that ordered it paid. :D

    Evil is a big word.
    It's just a lazy butt, that wants to buy other peoples products, without doing a damn thing in return.
    Several methods exist in the world for that. :)
