Morning All!

Wow, here's a really awful-looking coin from "Trump***." In fact, he has several really awful-looking coins for sale this week.

Also included in his description is this:

"If, during or after the bidding process you are contacted by anyone who discusses the authenticity of a coin or our credentials, please email us at thetwotears@yahoo.com so we can investigate."

Interesting statement to make since this auction is PRIVATE!

It looks like it came from the 'My first forgery' playset.

Too funny Cheesy

Even more amazing is the fact that there are bids on some of these clunkers.

Would it be fair to assume that his artifacts are also suspect?

Yes, they must be getting them from the same source.

Ugly...

The truly scary part is that there are apparently buyers for this crap!  The percentage of brain dead in the collector community must be larger than I thought.

So basically they took some Lipanoff fakes and made cast copies of them. But they must not have turned out too good. So being a resourceful forger they scampered over to their bench grinder and gave each side a good hit of first the wire brush wheel and then, to make 'em shine like new, the scotchbrite wheel. Hey great, they're thinking, I got rid of most of those pesky casting bubble, and even added a little mint luster! If only all fakes were this bad.
