Hey Guys

So I bought this note recently. I was pretty excited about it until I opened it up.

Would anybody consider this an AU?

Not a chance...

Based on what I can see, maybe a VF.

It is the note shown near the bottom of this page?...

I can see a lot of 0's showing through to the front.  ;)

Don't tell me a grading company graded that as an AU!

This note was graded by a dealer that should know better. The best part was when I brought it to his attention that the note was a far cry from an AU, this was his email response,

"his note is A.U (about unc) note may have several small counting flicks, or one light center fold"

Did you notice what's missing to his sentence?

This is the first time that I had somebody really lie and try and scam me.
