Just had an idea,
it would be fun if anyone comes across a suspect fake bullion coin or bar to post it here.

I don’t use eBay a lot but will keep my eyes peeled.

As a matter of principle, I never buy from any sellers in China. I did get my Bhutan Monkey from Kazakhstan though, and I'm happy it's pukka.

Should have known better but it was crazy cheap and not silver, base metal. Gave bad feedback to the seller and never heard no more but I did keep it because I like itPost your suspect eBay fakes  16767310

Tray,

I love it too, I am glad you bought it for yourself.
It reminds me of my Eternal Love heart pendant for Valentines Day, which is pure silver with a COA, but also was a disaster.
Eternal Love is a tricky concept.
Eternity rings seem to be OK and acceptable, but heart pendants are another matter.

I'm still a novice so this is why I'll stick to the well-known dealers
