Just took another gamble on ebay, arrived today.
The coin has diagonal reeding.
looks real, if it turns out to be fake, the fakes have improved their quality immensely.
If it's fake, it's a really beautiful coin.
The detail is really well done.
On the back side, there's a black dot at 10 o'clock or so.
That's about the only damage I can see to the coin.
The case is quite murky from sticky tape but the coin appears mint apart from the black dot.
Apmex says $130 each, with one in stock so it looks like it's a difficult coin to get hold of.
If someone can verify authenticity, I've absolutely robbed the guy.
He's robbed me!
Would anyone care to share some info about these beauties from 2005?
apmex price is terrible
I find the temple back has a really fine edge which you can't see on fakes usually... nice coin
Well done on the price!
For those who are interested, with postage included, I ended up paying around $66 AUD for the coin.
Looks like a good buy.
Shame about that pesky black dot on the back
Either way, another sexy girl joins the collection!
The ebay game has quite a slimy feel to it.
Even if the pics look real, there's still a high chance the coin may not be.
I'm 5/5 with genuine pandas on ebay but I have a feeling that it won't last forever.
It's real. Diagonal reeding is on 2002 and later silver Pandas.
Lol, won't argue tbh...
