Uncirculated rolls of cents are big money-makers. Check out this post to see why. Concerning the above 1955-S roll of cents, the house states, “We peeked to see condition, but did not further open.” That’s honest. You can bid with confidence.

But in the same recent auction, Black and Gold did something we seldom see on Proxibid … and did it with style! Click to expand the photo below and read the description.


Black and Gold writes, “1860 one-half dollar California gold piece–guaranteed to be counterfeit.”

You gotta love Black and Gold which writes black and white descriptions and earns our trust.
