What does everyone else think of this listing?

I asked the seller if he would post better pictures.

I saw it earlier and was on the fence about it, but leaned toward it not being correct. Better pictures would help.

Isn't the U in TRUST supposed to be doubled fairly strongly on DDO-001?

Looks like mechanical?

The URST is supposed to be with strong separation lines.

I have my doubts on this even when I blew it up it looked like the doubling was MD (But hard to tell) to me also.

I would run away very quickly.

I am thinking the same thing.. I didn't even put it on my watch list.

Yep, this is another FANTASY-CAMP-SELLER. (I may be wrong, but the scans look familiar and I wonder if this seller doesn't have several user names where they sell similar junk?)

A few more that are from the same seller that are very wrong:

'84 DDO-001 (Probably NOT) (http://cgi.ebay.com/1984-Lincoln-error-Double-Die-VCR-3-DDO-3-WDDO-008_W0QQitemZ200378951862QQcmdZViewItemQQptZCoins_ US_Individual?hash=item2ea78428b6&_trksid=p3911.c0.m14)

none of those coins are correct, they are all frauds, typical e bait scams from some of those guys.

This seller e-mailed me an wanted my address to send me more pictures. I will not try and hold my breath to long waiting on them.
