Coin Design: The Cabinda Sovereign Coin Reverse portrays the Commemoration of the Hermaphrodite Brig Sail Ships.
The 19th Century brig, with all its variants, was a very popular ship in the shipping world. It was smaller than the ship or barque and so was cheaper to operate. It could be used in all the smaller coastal ports that the coasts of those days seem to have every few miles. The brig had a fine lined hull and brigs like this could be seen in any port in the world. The Royal Navy retained some brigs right up to the beginnings of the 20th century and they remained as training ships well into the century. Length 125 ft. 8 ins, Beam 26 ft., Depth 12 ft. 9 ins, Tonnage 234 tons.

Coin Design: The Cabinda Sovereign Coin Reverse portrays the Commemoration of the 4-4-0 classic American Locomotive.
The 4-4-0 was built continuously through the end of the 19th century. It handled both freight and passenger assignments, and its use among railroads was nearly universal - so much so that it acquired the name "American Standard," or simply "American." In 1884, 60% of all new U.S. steam locomotives were 4-4-0s, it carved its way into history with the taming of the Wild West. Sporting a powerful drive train, weighted pilot truck and power pickups on the tender, not only is this engine beautiful, but it's a great runner also.

FAKE COINS ON EBAY

eBay Forgeries

It is estimated that about a quarter of all ancient coins and about two-thirds of all antiquities sold on eBay are modern forgeries.
In March 2008, Professional Coin Grading Service issued an alert noting counterfeit PCGS slabs and various United States and Chinese coins originating from People's Republic of China being sold on eBay. eBay profiteers from Fake and Counterfeit Coins, so do yourself a favour and do not buy coins on eBay.

How to Avoid Coin Fraud on eBay

IN A NUTSHELL: The biggest venue in the world for coin fraud today is eBay, where coin fraud is common. Because eBay provides minimal protection against numismatic and other fraud and because it's so easy to scam others on eBay, it's safest to buy only from sellers you know or who are recommended to you by reputable sources.
