I don't know that it would be fraud. He listed a coin. He gave it a
grade (fairly accurate, BTW). He shows pretty decent pictures. And, he
gave it a Starting Bid price. Yes, that starting bid price is
outrageous, but I don't know how it could be fraud.
I still have no clue how this guy can think he can get these kinds of
prices from these coins. Maybe he is trying to scam some unsuspecting
bidiot. Or, maybe he's just clueless and honestly thinks he has some
sort of treasure there. I guess it's time to ask the seller.....
