Please beware of scam sales of undated 20p coins.

I have just seen today several listings saying "undated both sides like picture" on reading the description carefully it became obvious you would receive 2 ordinary 20p coins worth 40p yet 2 of the listings sold for over £60. If the buyer had checked the seller's feedback s/he would of seen other buyer's had fallen for the same scam.

Follow these simple rules to stay safe.

 Do not buy a coin/s listed as undated on back or undated on front. The only collectable one's are undated to both the front and back! If they are not undated on the front and the back they are just ordinary 20p coins you already have in your pocket.

Read the listing very carefully before making any bid whatsoever, so you know exactly what you are getting!

Don't just see a photo of the coin and place a bid without reading the listing carefully. The photo may have been cut and pasted from a genuine listing with a "rare undated on the back" or  "front" scammer's description.

There are more scam listings than genuine so take care to read thoroughly before bidding!

READ, READ and READ again and stay SAFE.
