These stories about fake coins seem to make the rounds whenever we have a spike in physical buying. I understand why they do that but part of me thinks it's intentionally thrown out there to keep people from buying coins entirely.

"more than likely to be a fake"

That's a pretty strong statement.

Oh My Gosh!!! I never thought this could be possible. Should be more careful and read more on the counterfeits. I got to see an original silver American Eagle.

went down to my local PM/coin dealer shop. (Patriot coins and ammo). 10oz silver bars (generic) for 250. plus 8% sales tax (here in Texas, that would be 20.00 each). This was laying on the counter (these are stock photos):





the one she had was very, very worn, you could barely make out the date.

I said, "is that real?" She put a magnet over it and it jumped off the counter.
she said someone tried to sell it to her husband, but it had "In God We Trust" over the eagle, which wasn't added until later. Sharp eye he had. I wouldn't have caught it, it looked real. Wonder how they faked the wear.
