he has some POTF coins up for auction. what worries me, is he always has these coins up for auction, and he uses the same fuzzy pictures every time. people keep buying them too. i have probably seen about 15 yak face coins get sold from this guy.

he either has a nice stash, or he's pressing these himself. i can't tell if the pictures are fuzzy, or if the coins are fuzzy and possibly repro. anyone here every bought one from him?

never dealt with him but here's my two cent opinion...

1. the coins look a little funny...like candy coins at easter
2. seller is in malaysia...not to generalize but that area of the world is notoriously for phony star wars products
3. in the auction, it says "Original"...in quotes like that with a bigger font...as if to say "no, really, these are the real thing...I wouldn't lie"

between my first thoughts and how many coins you've seen him sell in the past?...watch your back http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/wink.gif

if terratung is a member here, maybe he can shed some light on this?

I bought an Emperor coin from him back in November. It looks and feels like the real deal to me. I can post a scan of the coin later tonight when I get home from work. The transaction went smoothly with no problems. My ebay id is skemple of you want to look up what I had to say about him.

I also bought some coins from him last year, and they 'seem' legit. However, I am now concerned because he seems to have stream of these things coming in, which is not a good sign. Generally, he does not sell the high end ones, which means he is either bright or they are real http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif
