This is a current eBay listing for the ultra rare 1895-P Morgan dollar. Theses are my thoughts and I would like your thoughts:

-The story is bogus. Any time someone pushes a story in your face 99% it is to mislead you.

-The coin is in the dreaded PCCB slab(Can anyone say Chinese fake?)

-The seller is new to eBay(11 feedback, lol)

-The seller will not respond to my emails when pressed about story

-Coin is easily $30,000++ and starting price is $500

-Only Two photos of coin, shielding slab information(not that it matters, lol)

SEE FOR YOURSELF BELOW

The "5" is way off. What else can you spot? I have already reported this to eBay. Always someone trying to scam the community.

Hi. This guy is a big fake. I went to the Chicago police about it. He also claimed to have a 1893-S. He posted offers all over on different craigslist. His phone number is 708-833-2955.

Here is one of his craigslist post:

Guess who just contacted me about my wanted to buy silver ad on Craiglist? Same guy.
He says he's returning my call (I never initiated a call with him) and he has 320 oz of rounds to sell which includes 250 1984 Prospectors. I told him I would pay spot for rounds (before I knew exactly what he had) and he said he would take $20/oz for all of them. Now when spot is $23.25 who is going to give away a thousand dollars? That was a huge red flag for me. Anyways, contacted all the police agencies and they could care less. Posting this so if this is bought by some poor soul and resold and found out to be fake then a little research will point to the source. If they are bought and stashed away forever..................... then nevermind.
