Default Fake trade dollar in a fake PCGS slab?

Seller is already NARU and a Hong Kong seller. Red flags everywhere.

P.S. "Not a registered user" usually means that eBay has taken action to
close the registrant's account for one reason or another.

Not enough detail to say for sure. From the one picture of the reverse, it
is in FAR better condition then the cast coins coming out of China (I have a
few examples).

If I had to guess solely on the pictures, I'd say real. But, coming from
China, I'd stay away. On the other hand, if it is a fake coin and slab, I'd
REALLY like to see it up close.

How common are fake slabs?

Is this becoming a significant problem, or are fake slabs easily detected?

That is the coin described in the PCGS database for that Reg #.
Looking at the feedback it appears this seller use images of real coins he
doesn't have.

The seller's negative feedback seems to be the result of non-delivery of his
goods, not that the goods are of questionable authenticity. The number on
the slab checks out OK on the PCGS website.

Which is a very expensive lesson for the bidder. Always check feedback
before bidding! She could have saved herself some grief, and some money.
