Re: [Error Coin Information Exchange] Liberty Nickel and Dbl. Strk. Silver Quarters
- This D/S quarter closed pretty darn high.All things considered, the 100 dollars I shelled out for the counterfeit D/S 'V nickel' does not sting quite as much (though I'am arranging for a refund).http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=330265147294&ssPageName=ADME:B:WNA:US:1123

Date: Wednesday, August 27, 2008, 9:17 AMGood mornin' guys -
Jeff - I'm certain, from viewing the scans only, that
your Liberty Nickel is not a genuine D/S.
"False Dies" / "Soft Dies" etc......
Marc - Good eyes, imo - BOTH of those Double Struck
Silver Quarters are NG, imo. They are the
type that started coming on the market around
1968/69, or thereabouts. Just my view........

- Let us know how your refund request goes. Some sellers won't provide a
refund unless the coin is returned with a "body bag" from PCGS or NGC.
That is costly.
