Anyone dealt with Lansky, LLC in Serbia?

I just placed a bid through biddr for a coin listed with Lansky located in Serbia.  Has anyone dealt with them before?  Has anyone had any problems with the coins they offer? I should have checked Lansky's location before bidding but didn't.  It's their auction #5, so I figured they had been around long enough to get some feedback.  Any help would be appreciated.

Only "low price" coins - but without any problems...

This coming auction I will participate too.

 

 

Good luck with that! The estimates mean nothing. All coins have hidden reserves, sometimes stratospheric ones.

This one sold by Lansky back in July 2020 is definitely a fake: https://www.numisbids.com/n.php?p=lot&sid=3962&lot=38

There are only less than five of these coins known to exist, but compared to the genuine coins, the style of this one is way off. I notified the auction house as well as the Italian experts I knew who specialized in this coinage, but it was still sold for EUR 8000 to some poor soul.

I remember the previous CoinTalk thread and participated in that one at the time too. The conversation got pretty heated, which was disappointing. However, the fact remains that this auction house didn't pull this coin which with a little research could be clearly shown to be a fake. Caveat emptor.

I'd forgotten about Lansky and that thread.   Looking in that sale of 2020, I see they describe a scarce Augustus "Tribute Penny" as the common Tiberius version - https://www.numisbids.com/n.php?p=lot&sid=3962&lot=182

That said, I'm tempted to bid on at least one coin in the the latest auction 😄

ATB,
