    The bastard thieves in China have been counterfeiting for years. They have some very nice Peace dollar dies that produce fakes good enough to trick many dealers.

    Beware of fakes in everything.

    BTW- yeup, sure got a pair of owl eyes on that fake.

    Fake U.S Silver Eagle coins soaring through Hamilton, police say


    Hamilton Police say they've gathered over 500 fake U.S Silver Eagle coins sold across the city over the past few months.

    Hamilton coin collectors and pawn shops are getting duped.

    Police are warning that fake U.S silver eagle dollar coins have been circulating in the city and have been sold to various establishments over the past few months.

    "You wouldn't be able to tell the difference (with) the naked eye. The coins are actually very high quality fakes," Const. Mike La Combe said in a Hamilton Police YouTube video. "They are silver and nickel-plated, which gives them the look of an actual silver dollar. However, when you cut them open, you can clearly see on the inside, they are brass filled."

    The video shows some of the roughly 500 fakes that have been confiscated so far.





    "They are worth practically nothing, just a couple cents each," La Combe explained.

    LaCombe is a pawn unit investigator and says the coins are being bought online, then sold at "golden" times for the seller when shops are busy or with little staff. During the rush, employees may not have the time to do all the proper authenticity checks, giving criminals the chance to sell fast without getting caught.

    "Only buy them from reputable dealers, a place that is established, an expert who works there who knows the difference between real and fake. Don't buy them off the internet. and don't buy them from people from the public who aren't considered experts because more than likely you're going to get a fake," added Le Combe.

    If I bought Silver or Gold.................. I surely wouldn't announce it on a public forum.

    I don't believe in it, dollars that's were I will be.

    "We recommend buyers only trust in Silver Maples, since they are much harder to counterfeit. The queens mug is so terrifying that the original artist was turned to stone and there is no record of any counterfeiter who could duplicate the saurine eyes of the original maple design."

    Here's some turn to stone for you all. Joe Walsh and Don Feldner teach the Eagles how to sit back and watch the men play.....At 6:45 it goes into a few bars of "You just keep me hangin on" which I have never heard in a mix of this one. Best version of this one I have heard.

    Down with the queen...

    Patience comes to those who wait.....calculate distance, drop, wind speed, relax and gently commit.

In other words, the economist serves no function in society except to protect the ruling elites from public scrutiny while they loot the planet. Jay Hanson

    This is how they will scare commoners away from metals. Most I run into are not sophisticated enough to read the ingredients labels on the food they buy. None of the common morons could think about applying tests to metals.

    Good point. This guy has 500 of these fakes and in all my years visiting LCS and shopping on line I have seen not one fake SAE. How is this possible. Is Hamilton the Mecca of of fake SAE production?

    there's a LOT more fake FRN's out there than fake silver ... but the Zio-media is strangely quiet about that.
