Here is snap of my inbox... I posted a ad that I'm interested in buying coins in my city Patna. I got many replies.. Most of which were seeking sky high prices.. some were trying to sell fake coins whose images also i'll post here..

the above one is the funniest... See the price the seller is trying to quote...

another one is below trying to sell a fake coin... its a copper coin plated with silver to fool people.

So dear fellow coin collecters.. Be sure about genuineness of coin and its price before u buy it from a unknown source.

easiest way ----

Consult krause cataloge to find if that coin actually minted in silved. If yes then test the spacifics, mainly weight. Weight will differ if a coin is silver-plated instadeof pure silver.

Besides counterfite coins are usually missing details in the design.
