FEATURED WEB SITE: COUNTERFEIT COINS FROM CHINA

This week's featured web site is suggested by Rich Hartzog.
It's from the About.com web site, and it has a number of
pictures of operation in China producing reproductions of
U.S. coin.

"The photos in this gallery were taken inside a Chinese coin
counterfeiting operation. This counterfeiting ring is suspected
of putting thousands of fake coins onto the world and U.S. coin
markets every month.

"The sheer size, scope, and professionalism of this counterfeiting
ring will astonish you. Although the working conditions often
appear dirty and the minting equipment is old, this is obviously
a well-funded enterprise that is run like a legal business in
China. There is no law in China against making these "replicas"
as long as they are sold as such."
