My grandpa just told me there has been reports of people street selling 20 silver coins for 20 dollars. Old coins like the 1804 bust dollar, and others. They are counterfeits. This is happening in Los Angeles, he told me it's likely to spread to other big cities since it's 'caught on', people think they are getting a great deal but they are really getting ripped off.
