Post Secret Service investigating fake Morgan and Peace Silver Dollars

Quote :
The U.S. Secret Service’s continuing multi-jurisdictional investigation into the sale of counterfeit United States coins is widening, with incidents reported by local law enforcement agencies in at least 12 states.

In one of the most recent incidents, in Amherst, N.Y., a suburb of Buffalo, one of two men arrested and charged March 27 with allegedly peddling counterfeit Seated Liberty, Morgan and Peace dollars at a local jewelry store had been released from federal custody in New Jersey in 2011 on charges from four different states for allegedly doing the same thing.

Kim Baglio, a special agent for the Secret Service in Buffalo and the lead investigator in that office for probes into the counterfeit coin sales, confirmed April 2 the agency is working with local law enforcement on a number of cases. She said she could not disclose how many different incidents or New York jurisdictions are involved.

I had heard about fake Morgan and Peace dollars being peddled on ebay and I was wondering if the Secret Service was investigating. Looks like they are.
