Disgusting person. eBay does nothing, as usual, I suppose? Under Napoleonic law, if the seller were a whore, eBay would qualify as a pimp.

I tried to report the fake/counterfeit coins to eBay, but so far the business of these guys is going on well.

Words in fake coin listings :  TOKEN-SILVER,  TOKEN, token Silver Token

If any such words are there in silver coin listings from India,  most likely those coins might be fake.

I can share the names of eBay sellers too who are involved in such business, But beware of buying coins
from these sellers.

List of eBay sellers - selling counterfeit stuff :  saifcoins53(46), burhanicoins52(600), rohil_antique02014(249),
jasimcollection(2,518),  coinvirasat.

These sellers sold one or more counterfeit in last 12 months on eBay.

Make sure you save a link and the picture of at least one fake for each of these names, so we can support you if these nasties (or eBay) decide to get nasty.

The real fakers don't ever use words like 'token'  because that tells you the coin is not real, lots of Mughal zodiacal rupees are appearing but they have the word token added and I think that is acceptable as they are admitting the coin is not real & therefore you buy it knowing it is not real

I don't find it acceptable. A token is not an imitation. It has a real function in the economy.

These wonderful coins doesn't seem like 100% genuine to me.  ALl having the same die, same strike, and similar edges.

If you go through eBay sold items, you can easily find out that, these sellers sold exact coin so many times.
Its modern forgery.

Very fine coin. Plus it scares, which is a built-in protection against potential thieves.
