Counterfeiting Factory in China
« on: December 11, 2008, 04:29:36 PM »
The following link is an article wrote by Susan Headley in December 3, 2008 issue of Coin World about a counterfeiting factory (own by jinghuashei, a well-know seller of copy coins at ebay)in China. The article covers three parts. The Part two and Part three will be published in the next two issues of Coin World. Howeveer, because of its impact to the coin collectors, CW made these two parts avaliable now in its web site (without fee). The article covers a personal interview with the owner of the factory (Part 1 & 2) as well as the way to detect counterfeit PCGS slabs (Part 3).

Susan Headley's article also can be viewed in her website as link given below. It includes the original article links of CW article. She has provided background information into her investigation into "jinghuashei's" forgery factory.

Please note that those expensive PCGS, NGC and ANACS slabbed Chinese coins at ebay may not be genuine as some sellers, especially from China, claimed. Examine the coin carefully, not slab before you buy.

How about ANACS or ICG slabbed Chinese in the USA?          I was told that NGC, PCGS, ANACS and ICG are graders that you can trust for genuine coins/medals.   
A year or 2 ago ANACS or ICG were priced very low in comparison to NGC PCGS.    Today about the same.
How does ANACS or ICG grade when crossed over to NGC or PCGS?....
Do you trust ANACS or ICG?
Should we avoid ANACS or ICG?.....

Do you have more photos of fake slab vs real?
How about this 1985 Palace Museum that was on ebay recently from China?    real?  fake?.....see photos...

Marks and fingerprints on the coin also match the PCGS database photo

Thanks, I was told Chinese seller Confusion is very good seller.      Fakes are really getting good.     A counterfeit factory is very bad, i wonder where all those fakes are?    Mostly in the East?   
Hopefully ANACS and ICG are good graders too....
