This shop sold me a Chinese counterfeit Buffalo nickel for more than $300 and then refused to answer emails about it. Generally, when a coin dealer has 1 counterfeit coin, they have many. Depending on their level of skill, they may not even know they have counterfeits in their inventory. It would not surprise me that they simply don't know to determine if a coin is a fake or not.

Whatever the case, when something important happens like hearing from a buyer that the business has sold them a forgery, should they not at least communicate with the buyer? Respond to emails? Should they not seek to make things right in some manner?

None of those things happened in my case. Schofield Coin simply has ignored me so that I will hopefully go away. In my experience, that usually means the seller has no interest in ethics, honest dealings, or customers. I guess the $300 is most important to them.

From my ebay purchases history:

1919 D, Buffalo Nickel AU (281096684350) $305
schofieldcoinandhobby | 3373 | 99.9%
Sale date: 10/05/13

I then emailed them through the ebay internal email function on January 23rd, 2014 with the following note:

Dear schofieldcoinandhobby,

Hi:

Regarding the 1919-D Buffalo you sold me (lot 281096684350) I wanted to thank you so sincerely for selling me a Chinese counterfeit for $300+.

So I discovered the swindle less than 3 months after our transaction. No attempt has ever been made to mitigate the sale of the forgery to me. E.g.- the seller is happy selling counterfeits and rather than trying to make things right by the victim, they ignore all communications and hide behind the relative anonymity of the internet.
