Anyone get the replica Morgan gimmicks from Tom Ladshaw? He has the regular shell, flipper, etc but also a split coin. Curious as to your impressions!

Benjie, after I saw your post, I look up tom Ladshaw, I did no know him, and placed an order for a Four in one Moran gimmick (they are replicas) and a half dollar Luohanquian shell and coin.

4 in 1: These are not shells made of expanding coins but rather manufacturer shells of larger diameters. Hence the coverage is perfect 95% or more when they are nested and the faces are perfect, So I am very happy with this gimmick

Chinese coin: Beautiful coin with almost 100% coverage by the shell, also very happy

Tom, communication and service was top notch. I will use him again in the future.

Don’t be a pretentious *sshole. Not everyone has to have overpriced silver coins!! You think that the audience knows the difference or even gives a sh*t?!

Can we get a mod to put this dude back on the right side of the bed? Payner that’s completely uncalled for and you should find another place to bully someone

I looked at his Morgan and Chinese Coin gaffs on his site. All are exactly available on eBay from China and his prices naturally reflect the Chinese prices + marked up to resell. Based on that, his prices are reasonable. eBay Coins: If you are willing to wait 3-6 weeks for the free shipping direct from China you can save money; otherwise you can likely get them quicker from Tom for more money.
So, depends what you want: Cheap or Faster. But you can’t get both! LOL

I just took a look at the site.
With the exception of the steel core coin, the Morgan replicas are very poor attempts to look like an actual Morgan dollar.
If you're on a really tight budget, they'll probably get the job done, but be sure that _all_ of your replicas are the same cheap variety or they won't look right next to each other.
Even then, anyone familiar with real Morgans (admittedly not many but there are coin collectors out there) will immediately spot them as fake.

Although Payner overstated the case, there was no need for someone to post his silver dream false superiority complex here with a thread on replica coins.
I couldn't give a hoot about silver and prefer steel replicas for how they work flawlessly with magnets and holdouts. Twocan, if we were in a contest, the miracles I create with Morgan replicas would make you run away from the contest after seeing me, ok? So much for the " faux feel of silver" sounds like an ad for an Amway skin cream. Buy into the fakeness, just do it on your own dime. not here in a thread on Morgan steels.

Yes Stephon, excellent post. Better just wait and get them on ebay for a better price.
I also prefer Morgan steels because if in the rare case I were to lose one, I don't have to sweat it so much.
I could care less if I am a millionaire or a pauper; I don't like losing costly, hard to replace silvers.

I also think it is worth noting that there are multiple versions of 'replica' morgans. I have a few that unless you used bleach you would have no way of knowing they were not real silver. The weight, ping test etc is all very close and they are non magnetic. I have two sets from Ronald Davies (another plug great guy) and I have to keep track of the dates to know one from the other. Mind you I am not a coin expert with a microscope but neither is most of this board Smile

Yes chrom, sometimes the truth hurts collectors and dablers. But you said it so thank you.
