Post by JackBnimble01 » Sun May 02, 2021 8:35 pm

Coming across faked coin's & holders.
For Pcgs, none so far on NGC, or anacs anyone come across any?

Has anyone heard of a rumor/story of The US government giving away old Dies / press machine of the Morgan dies To China, have heard this story many times, over the years, is that a true or false story, or any articles if anyone’s knows for sure?

Never heard the China rumor on dies, but maybe it will close the deficit.

Alien origin is just as credible.
China's bad guys had to start inventing everything from scratch.
When in doubt... don't.

As far as I know all dies are physically destroyed by the mint after use. I heard the rumor that China bought a surplus mint press years ago.

I'm actually more concerned that our government transfers missile and submarine technology to China, but then there is Chinese drywall and dog food that was a disaster too. Caveat emptor.

I also heard about the presses, not anything about dies. I've had
the unfortunate experience with a fake PCGS holder and coin as well.
