Well done, Mark, JB, Dennis, et all - this is a next generation counterfeit.

Imagine once they start making these out of silver. Or even melted down Morgan dollars. Or artificially, giving them the appropriate bag marks, etc. And then putting them inside of fake NGC holders.
I’m trying to find out where the seller got it from but as you can imagine they are not being very forthright. I would imagine Alibaba, but can’t be sure.
They threw it up on eBay buy it now for a low price and I hurriedly grabbed it. Since the photos were blurry - it looked right (and phenomenal). The thought of it being a counterfeit definitely crossed my mind, but hey, it’s a eBay, buyer protection. If nothing else we get some good photos of a dangerous counterfeit.
While opening the mail, my wife it dropped on the kitchen counter, I heard it from the other room and knew it was a counterfeit immediately before even looking at it from the noise. What I didn’t expect is that it would be such a well executed counterfeit.
Would love it if somebody wanted to do an article on one of these, hopefully an article that the TPG’s would pick up and send out.
