What do you think about this ebay purchase?

Postby smackvay » Fri Nov 29, 2019

So I purchased a nice unc/bu raw toned morgan on ebay last week and it arrived today!!!!!
The coin is literally clear shipping taped RAW on the toned side to a piece of cardboard, am I being a baby and need to move on or should I be a bit upset?

I would be upset. They should know better than that. I'd seek a partial refund and keep the coin if I liked it enough.

I’d return it. Maybe wrap up in a roll of duck tape just to make sure it doesn’t get damaged in transit ;)

Good strike for 83-O.

Just give her an acetone bath after removing the tape if you want to keep her. No real harm....just far from ideal shipping.

By looking at the Sellers page, I guess he or she has no idea on how to treat coins. Maybe this is a good time to be nice and educate the seller on how to treat them, In a nice way. Lol

I plan on doing that when I get a chance.
I opened the package and thought is that coin really taped to a piece of cardboard. Lol

Yes you are being too sensitive. The listing was for a raw morgan. That's what you got. I am sure that coin has been fondled and abused for the last 100 years. The bigger question is - is it real or a fake?

Uses white gloves to hold the coin for picture and then straight tapes it to the cardboard. :lol:

I would slowly peel the tape off and send a message to the seller to help educate them!
