$10-Million Inherited Rare Coin Collection? Or, Chinese Junk?
A rare coin collection worth an estimated $10-million if genuine, said to have been begun in the 1930s, has been described by a coin expert as composed mostly of recent Chinese counterfeits. The buyer may have thought he got a "steal" at $70,000, and, while possibly true, it was of a different sort than expected. The truth of the matter is up to the court to decide, story here via Coin World magazine.
