Counterfeit coin

#1 Unread post by RevlisAg »

I just purchased this silver round and my magnet stuck to it. Someone went to great lengths to make this fake. I'm just wondering do you guys test your purchases or is there a need to?

You should be able to get your money back since it is a fake. Look into it.

Testing, unfortunately is a must nowadays. Buying from trusted dealers like Daniel is the best way to make sure you are getting what you pay for.
