Knew it was too good to be true. Didnt even need the sigma, the bar was way too thick, but everything else is pretty close to the real thing

    Wasn't $25 under spot enough of a giveaway that it was fake?

    It's really disappointing that eBay allow this sort of shit to continue to happen

    I don't think I would ever buy a certicard, sovereign etc off eBay. Just not worth the risk at all.

    I bought a 1oz Walking liberty round off ebay that was good enough to convince our sole local coin store until I turned back from the door and asked to put it on their scale- 28gms

    haha so sounds like he knew it was fake. Ebay should remove his account.

    btw did he show a pic of the side on ebay? The thickness is a dead giveaway! Also the overlapping kangaroo prints on the boarder.
