I've been deceived

Coins | user_5621

So I bought Indian head coins from an Auction that come in a beautiful blue PCGS box graded and all.........SO I THOUGHT!!! I am so made at myself I should have see the red flags ALL OVER THE PLACE but I didn't, I was too excited at what I was looking at. The auction wording was Collectors 20 Slabbed Indian Head Pennies in a Blue PCGS Box,

  • The Indian Head design was minted from 1859-1909
  • Popular Wreath design on reverse
  • 20 Slabbed Coins Total
  • Blue PCGS Case Included

SO WHAT WOULD YOU THINK RIGHT nicely graded coins, NOT, the coins were slabbed from International Bureau of Numismatic IBN .....UGGGHHHH...... the coins do not have a grading nor do they indicate what the coin is or what year. Now I don't know what to do, get my money back at a 15% restocking fee and pay for shipping?

I hope you got them cheep. It is a learning experience. Just ignore 8931 his words speak for themselves. I would tell us the name of the auction house. I think they listed it wrong.

I'm sorry to here about that but these guys are at shows like vulture's. I would move on if you didn't pay alot if you did I would go after him. How many collector's has he done this to and plans to do more!

If you didn't pay a ton of money, just move on. It's good experience. believe me, everyone has done something similar. You could try the Attorney General of the state it took place in. Sometimes that works. Especially in Arizona. Good Luck!

I Agree with World coin nut. Treat it as an I.I.E (Investment in Experience). Remember you should always buy the coin not the slab...

The first thing you can do is to announce the name of the auction house for deception OR use that as a threat (you will announce how you were deceived to the 24,000 members of the ANA)! See what their reaction is and if they are willing to resolve the issue to your satisfaction!!! The choice is yours, but we will support whatever decision you make.

It really all depends on how much you paid. If you got these super cheap just consider this a lesson learned and move on. If not I would attempt to send them back. I think this is something we all get burned by sooner or later.
