Tell us, Mr. Numismatist, why is it "crazy"?
Expound on your theory with your great knowledge of numismatics and
economics.

I especially like that 1865 George Washington silver dollar.  You could probably get
that "rare" coin pretty cheap but you would be buying it "AS IS" ONLY, NO RETURNS AND
ALL SALES FINAL.  Gives me a warm feeling to know that I would be dealing with such a
knowledgeable and reputable seller.    :-)

I think the seller should loosen his restriction from only buyers in the
continental US to include buyers in China as well.  It's only fair.

The 1795 dollar has the rare "Ugly Duckling" reverse. ;-)

He states clearly in the auction that he does not know it it's real or not,
the one I looked at.

It's impossible to protect foolish ebay bidders from themselves.  Billy

Which is a Policy violation:
<http://pages.ebay.com/help/policies/authenticity-disclaimers.html>

... and one for which Report-This-Item on the listing
page does not seem to work. You have to Email-Us
from the Policy page, and paste in a list of listing numbers.

Although this is pretty clearly a case of a seller who know
damn well that these are counterfeits, the majority of
eBay sellers are unaware of the AuthDisc policy.

Somebody just buy one & then neg him.  That would be fun.

Not any more.
If the seller opens a dispute, and the buyer doesn't play
along to eBay's satisfaction, the neg disappears.

If, on the other hand, eBay disappears these listings,
which I consider likely, then the FB probably vanishes too.

eBay may NARU this dude while he attends remedial
Policy class. NARU beats Neg, every time.

The seller is also using identical photos to list "different" coins.

This would appear to be a violation of:
<http://pages.ebay.com/help/policies/selling-coins.html>
"* Include a clear picture of the actual coin or paper
 money item that is being offered for sale."

However, we have the typical eBay internal inconsistency
from that same Policy page:
"* If unsure of the origin or authenticity of the coins or
 paper money, please state this clearly in the listing.

Sigh.
Square that with:
<http://pages.ebay.com/help/policies/authenticity-disclaimers.html>

What's the name of this game?
How many distinct Policy violations can be spotted
before eBay nukes the listings?

130208758761
Violates:
<http://pages.ebay.com/help/policies/selling-coins.html>
"* Images that are dark, out of focus, doctored or
  otherwise deemed misleading are not permitted."

You'd think that someone intending to game the system
would at least first learn the system.

Why would one "open" a dispute for such a low-life?  Humor me, I have
not done anything on e-bay for the last three months or so, and last I
knew, you could just lv a neg.

The eBay of yore is gone.
The FB rules have changed radically in the last 3 months,
and are set to change some more.

For example, sellers will no longer be able to leave Negs,
at all, period. And frivolous Negs from buyers are going to
be vanishing at a much higher rate than in the past.

eBay is clearly emulating amazon.com.
S&H changes are coming too.

It's not clear that "ebayzon.com" will be an improvement
over ebay.com, particularly since eBay is doing nothing
to re-educate former buyers who already have a negative
mindset about how eBay works. They'll have no idea the
FB landscape has changed in their favor.

amazon.com failed at auctions.
Gonna emulate that, eBay?
