PoliceAuctions.com Sold me FAKE Silver Dollar Costa Mesa California
*Consumer Comment: Not a ripoff.
Today I received a coin in a padded envelope from an on-line auction I won. The shipping time was good - matter of a couple days since the end of the auction. The coin was described as "Collector's Uncirculated One Troy Ounce .999 Silver Clad 1893 CC Morgan Dollar Tribute Coin." I paid $51 for the coin and was excited that I got it for that price and the other bidders did not continue to bid me up more. Now I know why. I am an amateur coin collector and like collecting silver dollars, especially Morgan dollars. Since this was advertised as "uncirculated" I wanted it for the quality which I don't have on any of my other coins. However, I didn't look at the photo close enough. Upon inspection, the word "COPY" is imprinted under the left wing of the eagle on the back side. Obviously I didn't expect a "COPY" but wanted a value piece of currency. This is a "Tribute" but to what I don't know. I suppose it is a tribute to the dollar - or the eagle - or the silver - or the date - or to the coffers of policeauctions.com's cash drawer. When I called them I was told it says "COPY" in the photo. The auction reference number is 1066770. Go to it and see if you can readily see where it says "COPY". If you want a valid coin and not a counterfeit coin buy it from a reputable coin dealer not from PoliceAuctions.com. Ed G (((REDACTED)))@verizon.net
