I finally got around to leaving him negative feedback, he sent me the following wailing response:

Hi money already return still give me negative is it FAIR ! God ! Please return the 2 coin . May God Bless you

I especially like the sign off.
I guess he wants to make me feel guilty for not sending back his fake crap for him to rip somebody else off with.

I'm not going to bother to respond to him.

You definitely need to report him,so he can get N.A.R.U.'d off FleaBay.

Mr. Lansen has PMed me to say that all of the tokens are fake or fantasy, including the token  pictured in black and white, which sold at auction in Germany in 2002.

Just goes to show that there are no guarantees even at a 'reputable' auctioneers, you'll just pay more for your fake token.

I will contact the seller to see what he says.
Don't do it. The black & white picture shows a genuine token of a 1/2 dollar.

I meant that I contacted the ebay seller. Not the b&w auction photo
