The purpose of this page is to alert consumers of fantasy tokens that deceptive sellers often pawn off as being genuine, rare, gold or valuable. All of those pictured on this page do NOT have any gold what-so-ever in them. Most are NOT even gold plated. They are either solid brass or non-gold plated pot metal. All pictured are worth small amounts and should not be confused with the real deal. Please ask questions before you buy. Send us an email or call us.
If you have recently purchased one of these for more than a few dollars, request your money back from the seller immediately. If it is too late for a refund, then you will have to chalk it up as one of life’s’ experiences. You failed to follow one of the golden rules – investigate BEFORE you invest. This is one of the main reasons we offer our FREE professional advice. Some dealers charge for professional advice. We do not.
California fractional Gold is not some dark secret. You must have the base knowledge of what to look for before venturing into this numismatic gold mine. This is no different than any other investment or collecting field.
WARNING! New replica 1909 Alaska tokens have recently been appearing on eBay. Do NOT confuse these with the real deal. Genuine Alaska gold coins MUST have the word PINCH or DWT on the reverse. The ones pictured here do not. Another newbie to hit the market are fake grading slabs. All have NPG across the top. NPG does not even exist. These deceptive sellers buy plastic holders off the retail market and place these official looking tags in them to pawn them off as genuine. If you see NPG – don’t buy.
