Secret Service Ignores Counterfeit Federal Reserve Notes, But Bans Liberty Dollars on eBay

from Wealth Wire:

Following a request from the U.S. Secret Service, eBay has begun enforcing a ban on the sale of all Liberty Dollar medallions. When contacted by Coin World, eBay spokesman Ryan Moore said: “The listing for Norfed Liberty Dollars have been removed as they have been deemed counterfeit by the United States Secret Service. Counterfeits are illegal and not welcome on any of eBay’s sites.”

The following emails were sent to eBay users whose listings for Liberty Dollars were cancelled:

The United States Secret Service has requested the removal of all Norfed Liberty dollars on the eBay site as counterfeits. … Please do not relist this item(s). We appreciate that you chose to list this coin on our site and understand there was no ill intent on your part. Your listing fees have been credited to your account.”

Created in 1998 by Bernard von NotHaus, the Liberty Dollar was introduced as an alternative form of money for those who do not want to use Federal Reserve Notes.

    That the US Gov was so hysterical in their prosecution of Mr. von Nothaus is symptomatic of people or organizations whose positions are so weak that they cannot survive ANY challenge to their perceived authority at all. This reminds me of the religious persecutions of the Middle Ages.

    If hysteria was not involved, the prosecutors would not have called Mr. von Nothaus a “domestic terrorist”, such that Draconian laws might then be used against him. If their position were one of real strength, they would simply have notified him that his coins were too close in design to those of official US coinage and he would be prosecuted if he did not change his design to something of even lesser similarity to US coins and to melt down his inventory of older coins.

    Having looked at both sides of a von Nothaus coin, it did not look like any US coin to me. But then, I KNOW what US coins actually look like and none of them ever contained the phrase “Trust in God”,a web addresses, or a phone number.

    The monopoly of fiat money creation is the most powerful tool shaping humanity to the will of the “masters”.

    I had 1200 pluses on Ebay. Closed both
    my Ebay account and Palpal this month.

    They require arbitration which you
    have 99% chance of losing.

    Absolute crimals run rampant. Ebay knows
    this and does nothing.

    Ebay and Paypal lock your bank account
    on a dispute.

    I sold a guy $800 worth of gemstones. He returned
    rocks and Ebay tried to get me to pay him.
    I had to close my bank account before they
    could do it.

    The buyer had 100% rating (so did I). Ebay
    is corrupt to the hilt. Lost
    all control of themselves to thieves.

    Paypal is extremely dangerous. They can lock your bank accounts
    and credit cards.

    For many years I warned Ebay a guy was selling
    fake Roman sestertius. I had experts contact them
    telling them the same.

    This guy sold over 2 million worth of fake
    ancients before the DA shut him down.

    Ebay does absolutrly nothing. If the person shows a return
    ticket number from USPS, etc, they consider you received
    item back. Its in their contract.
