    This was his reply:


    Thanks for you're enquiry. This was handed down to me, it is silver in colour and the only details I have are what's inscribed on the pedant.

    He's probably bid that 1st one.. so the next one will hv to buy if for sure... I bet when got disputed he will say everything is shown as what it is.. it is not fake causse he doesn't know anything about this jewellery...

    eBay is ALWAYS make it a safer place for everyone...so they said.

    Tried to report it but eBay won't let me. So much for putting buyers first.

    I reckon this is more sophisticated than it appears. All based on stolen ebay accounts. They bid on their own items building a good rep. Plenty of inactive seller accounts with $0 final value fees. They are also using these accounts to shill bid and massively pump prices on genuine numismatics so that their fakes later seem a bargain.

    There is confidence trick going on here- overconfidence on our side! We think we are smart to detect the underweight or oversized brass meanwhile the high quality counterfeits of molybdenum and tungsten probably sail by our metrics and XRF tests.

    Perhaps this is coincidence. I noticed on ebay a seller of moly 1 ozt planchets is also selling lunar 1 silver.
