I said in the decription by the auction
house the tooling is mentioned
. This defect is catered by the small price
. I am not defending the auction
house, they have an obvious slavey fake I already posted, and molinari posted another bronze italian
fake. And I suspect other ones as well. As I said it is obvious these 200 coins are coming from the collection
of sb that passed and possibly bought these are authentics, and the auction
house put everything on auction
To which I say so what?
The fact that tooling is mentioned is irrelevant to the fact that it is a badly tooled coin
which is the subject of the thread
The fact that the tooling is mentiond in the description doesn't alter the fact that the coin is misattributed, nor
does it in anyway remove the responsibility for both correct attribution
and mention that the tooling has created a totally false mint
control when the coin is correctly attributed.
The fact that it is accompanied by other crap material doesn't alter in any way that it is a badly tooled
, deceptive coin and thus worthy of posting in the thread
titled Badly Tooled Coins Here
. More worthy of the title badly tooled
than most of the coins posted previously, by virtue of the complete
falsification of the mint
control resultant from tooling.
Does the fact (if it is as you hypothesize) that this is part
of someone's collection
being sold lessen
the responsibility for this badly tooled coin
, or in some way make it less badly tooled
? I think not! On your logic it appears that any crap that finds its way into an auction
from someone's collection
is turned into something acceptable and that this "provenance
" removes the auction
house of any responsibility for authentication
, accurate description and attribution
. On the contrary in my humble opinion, but you may differ, as is you prerogative. In any event this aspect was not the subject of my original post, but rather irrelevant "smoke" that you have sought to blow over the subject of why and how this is a badly tooled coin
I note that the coin is marked as tooled
in the description and the starting price
is 50 euros so let's not make a big deal out of it.
So where is the "big deal" in posting this badly tooled coin
with an explanation of what is wrong with it?
