Default 1798 "Large Cent" from Ebay.... Got Busted Instead

Hi all,

Haven't been having much luck detecting lately between the colder weather and whatnot, but I did manage to find this "large cent" online...it was on open auction so I sent a Buy it Now request for $200 which was quickly accepted....

It didn't hit home until I opened the package! What a beauty and such a large coin!

My Christmas budget was just made! Oh, and will be getting out with the Deus HF coil this Sunday with the way my luck is running....

Awesome. If that coin is legit it's a $2,000+ coin all day long. Wow.

Bust Dollar - has the same bust designer as the same-year Large Cent so I see how it could be mistaken...

Don't worry Beach Bum I left a neutral feedback LOL

It should be worth mentioning that this particular dollar is the more desirable variety from that year as well. Pointed 9 with 10 arrows. It carries a little more value than the other varieties from the same year.

I have seen several fakes of 1795 draped bust those here recently, pretty well done but missing a detail here and there and they were 1 gram light, and the edge was off. What does the edge of the coin look like?

Did you weigh it and take a magnet to it? Hope it’s legit!

Default Get it graded & slabbed

If your trusted local coin dealer says it’s real, I would suggest to get it graded and slabbed. Wow, what a nice score!
