This is what the buyer says on the listing:

THIS IS A NOVELTY AND FANTASY/REPLICA COIN USE FOR POOJA.

 PEOPLE KEEP THIS IN POOJA HOUSE AS ITS CONSIDERED LUCKY AND CONSIDERED TO BRING WEALTH,THIS IS JUST A TEMPLE TOKEN TYPE COIN .  PEOPLE DO WORSHIP THIS COIN AS ITS CONSIDERED SACRED . I THINK MANY BUYERS ALREADY KNOW THIS THING .SO PLEASE BID ONLY IF YOU INTERESTED IN BUYING THIS TEMPLE TOKEN
"IT IS A TEMPLE TOKEN AND NOT A LEGAL TENDER "


It is in RED, Bold letters......... Now if some one takes it to be a genuine coin, ..........

'THIS COIN IS USED FOR POOJA AND COLLECTION PURPOSE. BIDDERS PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS COIN IS MADE BY SOME TANTRIK SO IT IS SAID IT HAS BLACK MAGIC ON IT. THIS COIN COST GOES IN LAKHS SO THIS IS GOOD FOR COLLECTOR AT GOOD PRICE.'

For the first coin he mentions: 1929 EIGHT ANNA GEORGE V KING EMPEROR VERY RARE INDIA COIN HARD TO FIND @Rs.1 + Silver quantity just one gram in polish.
For the third and fourth coin he mentions:  BIDDERS PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS COIN IS MADE BY SOME TANTRIK SO IT IS SAID IT HAS BALCK MAGIC ON IT.
For the fifth coin he mentions:THIS NOTE IS ONLY USED FOR COLLECTION PURPOSE.

The points he mentions appear to be a ploy to get around the law if some one complains. Most of the above are mentioned somewhere in the middle of a paragraph. For the first coin he calls it 8 Anna coin while it is a 2 Rs, 8 Anna coin. Third & forth he mentions clearly mentions: made by tantriks. The last is called a NOTE for collection purpose.........while the item is a coin.

Even mentioning as quoted by asm above should be objectionable. First person may buy as token and in circulation it will not go as ‘NOT TOKEN’. Purchasers are bound to be duped. As stated above it will exhibit how the fake coins can be made in your courtyards. Such listing should be treated as fake.

It is only be treated as TOKEN or Fancy Items if they do not have any denomination. A piece of Metal with Denomination can be only issued by the Government and any other issuing it is an offence under Criminal Law.

All the five coins listed on ebay are with "Denomination"  & described as "COINS" , it is evident that some one has produced these fake stuff  copying some details of original coins .

The ebay seller who has listed 5 coins , is knowingly describing these fakes as coins.

Cheers ;D

For some reason this 8 Reales seems to me as doubtful. I don't know why. Probably the rim is not like the usual ones. Experts please.

Ebay will not any action unless very serious situation arises. Their stand is that they are expected to do policing unless pointed out. At most listing is cancelled. Fresh similar listings appear after some days and even after hours.The purchasers are to be more vigilant, which is not possible is all case.
