I've had a little success in getting items I've reported to Ebay removed. Whether or not it's been coincidental, I'm not sure of but regardless, I reported all of these as well.

After going back and forth with the seller of the above listed coins, he reluctantly ended the auctions.

Thanks,
I've reported all the fakes even though he seems to have a legit 1901-O blended in the group.

This one I can't be 100% , my eyes are too petered out right now.

1878- O unbelievable

Lets see what happens. Ebay is super difficult to work with. :x :popcorn:

Funny how both sellers are in Texas.

Sent a message to the seller that most of his Morgans up for auction looked to be counterfeit. Reply was that they had been checked out and I was thanked for my input.... https://www.ebay.com/sch/11116/i.html?_ ... net&_oac=1 Since I am always looking for 1891 date, I found these really interesting https://www.ebay.com/itm/185672227901?h ...

Going to be some disappointment here... https://www.ebay.com/itm/175505127252?h ... SwjmNjgTrr and here... https://www.ebay.com/itm/185672224356?h ... AAOSwjgTx6
This seller has a couple of bad listings now and I have reported them, they should be down soon.

Betting most of these coins photos can be found on a past auction site. Looks like a scam to me.....https://www.ebay.com/sch/ous3298/m.html ... 3561.l2562

I was interested in this cool old-style ANACS 1921P, but the coin in the flip doesn't match the coin originally photographed:

The description notes that the coin has been A/T and polished with a clearcoat sprayed on.
Besides all this , the coin looks legit. :)

Lettering on the obverse looks suspect.

Tthe fact they didn't film the label should be enough to leave it in my mind

Yeah, and I do apologize for the confusion, the reason I put the link here is because the photos seems to have been altered to make the coin look more like a DMPL/PL than it would have without the alteration. So I would have to say overpriced and misleading.
