It's just the tip of the iceberg...regarding the seller.

Tal, PM me with specifics...

Just for the record, I have recently purchased over $300 worth of items, without any issues. Moreover, when I asked the seller to replace a few items because I was looking for the WWII-period pieces versus the 1985 re-issues, he was more than glad to do that. So I for one have not had any problems with this seller.

Thanks,

Eric

P.S. No I am not the seller... And no he did not pay me.

Eric,

I don't have a problem with the seller, and I did not buy anything from him.

The problem is that he sells made up groups, and new collectors could think they got a real group of a veteran, but actualy it was just joined together by the seller.

oh...

Oh, ok Tal! In that case, I definitely agree with you!

I realized pretty soon that there are several sellers on E! who make up groups and sell them. I do not think that they actually state that the medals are part of a group.

As I always tell people new to E! - check and re-check before you bid. Get all the details out of the way...

Eric

Eric,

The entire purpose of this section is not to seek out individual sellers, who sell fakes, but to educate collectors and to help them avoid costly mistakes.

Esteban,

You'll need to give $30-35, and any dealer can make one up for you.

Yes, about 21 or 25,000 chilean pesos...I can deal with it.
And what about original groups?
