End of the year bump!

If anybody is feeling generous (or maybe slightly inebriated) heading into New Year's Eve, FakeBullion.com is currently sitting on a loss of $800 for 2017, and $3000 over the life of the company. My wages are $0.00/hour times a lot of hours. This is a terrible business plan.

Where are our new Bitcoin billionaires? :lol: Crypto welcome.

Also this update:

I recently spent 40+ hours organizing a mess of fakes and updating my spreadsheet. I moved the "Wanted to Borrow" list to the FakeBullion.com site so I can point multiple audiences there and edit and update one central list. There are currently over 300 items on the list, there are a few dozen I still need to add, and I haven't even started to go through the pile of counterfeit 90% silver and pre-33 gold.

:shock:

Received a Wade Ventures Mundinero in a batch of rounds that fails PMV. It's also a little heavier (31.58 vs 31.18) and seems a little thicker. Only under intense magnification can I tell any differences in the stamping. I would never have considered these being faked...

Look at the difference in edge thickness, and the density of the foliage.

That's a new one to me! They will fake anything. I have some even more generic fakes than that :|

I'd love to borrow those to add it to the site. Or, if you have to return it, I could use those photos to add it to the database and credit you for it? Thanks for sharing!

I now have a contact with some inroads to eBay. If you see fakes on eBay, send me a link, and there's a good chance we can get them taken down.

Paul Joseph Watson cracks me up. I'm going to miss his limey, jump-cutting, non-soy mug when YouTube finally purges him from the platform.

So much wrong-think...
