Things aren't always as they appear!

Post by BrianVaile » Thu Oct 02, 2008 4:39 am

When looking for variety Ikes on the internet, I guess it should go without saying...Buyer beware!
Even those of us that have been doing it for a long time, looking for the right "markers" of
the scarcer varieties get burned on a regular basis. Most of this can probably be attributed
to bad lighting or pics that aren't all that sharp.

Another possibility is photo-shopping or altering a picture to make it LOOK like a
scarce variety, when it is not. While I don't really think a lot of this is going on...It does
remain a possibility to be aware of. I have had a run of bad luck lately and have come
to the conclusion that, NOTHING beats having the coin in hand and checking it out with
a glass or loop! I have to start getting out more and hitting B&M's!

Happy Hunting!
Brian

I think it has Rob. I know of one seller that sells roll's of 1971-S BS coins in a square tube that has a 71-S Pegger right smack on top. He uses the identicle photograph for his 1971-S BS Singles.

I have no doubt in my mind that this is intentional to attract bids from folks who think they are going to score in the big leagues!

Lee, I guess we're paying the price for work! I'm just grateful there is still quite a bit of low-hanging fruit to be picked. Rob
Now is the time to cherry Ikes. Lots of fruit still on the trees but don't wait too long. Rob Ezerman
