Hum, they look to be a low tier, if that, slabber. There's no Denver West Mint in THE US unless it's a private mint so these coins would either be tokens or fake. Do you have a link or images of the entire coins?

Don't know who they're but the coins do look genuine. However, their toning is artificial and made to look like it's "bulls-eye" toning for better appeal. At least I am sure the Columbian Half is AT.

Hi, yes the coins are genuine ,but the toning is not as i have bought several Morgan dollars and silver eagles from this guy and cracked the slabs to send in to NGC and got them back in a body bag stateing they were chemically toned=stay away

your welcome , i know this guy from ebay and have bought alot of coins from him in the past-his name is Jeff Martin and he lives in CO. when i first started buying his coins on the bay there were beautifully "toned" i am a fond collector of Morgan dollars (my favorite coin) and really didn't care if they were self slabbed/AT'd and self graded. I was buying very high grade coins (but AT'd) for cheap, ( $28-$35 each )but the more i talked to him and bought from him off of ebay the more BS he was trying to feed me to buy his coins, for amuch higher prices ,that is when i stopped buying from him,he used to own Denver West Mint ,but the site is no longer up as i think he got in over his head with the people buying his coins as NT coins and then complaining about them,also i told him that his grader needs to find a differant job as some of the coins were graded at MS-65 and i would put them at AU-55 at best,(tried to hide the wear/cleaning with the toning). of course i did not buy any of those coins ,just the ones that i knew would grade very high,so in a nutshell stay away from him as he is not a good person,just thought y'all should know this. his ebay user name is -jeff4scaglia

Good info and thanks for the additional info. I try to warn people about sellers like this and they're not nice people and have no business selling coins.

I wouldn't do that, but you should never be afraid since ebay won't do anything and he's a fraud. He's ripping people off and getting away with it so if anyone, is going to anything to anyone, it would be to him. I report fools like this to ebay on a regular basis, write about them on my blog and post against them any way I can. They can't do anything about it and wouldn't since they're robbing people and they know it.
