I got my free nickel from the ebay auction. It looks proof, but it is 1964, but a free nickel is still free. Cost the guy 61 cents to ship plus 5 cents, so i guess my 5 star feedback is worth 66 cents.

You must be logged in to see this link.

Not sure if you can do it more than once, this is a different auction.

Seems like a scam/trick to get a better seller rating. If I still bought coins on ebay I'd block him.

Yes they are 99 cents now but he doesn't require you to pay it. I just ordered one, gave him a good rating and mine is supposedly shipped.

I assume why they are 99 cents is to keep you from ordering more than one.

He said he is going to ship it tomorrow. I'm not going to pass up free money even if it is just to falsely inflate his feedback.

They are 99 cents because ebay will not let you put up a multiple item listing for a price below 99 cents. I have not done this yet. I bet they are buying good feedback and putting your name on a mailing list.

I got my nickel, and one sales-related e-mail. I "unsubscribed" from their e-mails and haven't heard anything since.

He gave me a choice of 61,62,63,64. Book price is the same so I got the 61 on order.

I wish I would have been given a choice. I already found a proof '64 in my change a while back.

I think its more of a marketing/advertising gimmick than to falsely inflate the ratings, as this seller already has over 12,000 ratings. Adding more good ratings is secondary I believe. I just "bought" one, I will always take a free coin if anyone wants to give me one!
