Hi, not sure if this is the right board for this (if not, my apologies to the mods, feel free to move), but I might be going through a serious transition shortly and may need a lot of FRNs. I have four 25BTC Casascius physical bitcoins that I might be looking to exchange for fiat.

What are people willing to pay for these? I've looked on ebay and haven't ever even seen 25s for sale, and I saw some of the 1BTC misprints going for multiples of their face value in the past.

Hard to say. Do they have the Series 1 hologram with "Casacius" misspelling?  If not, they won't go for more than 26.5, which is what Casascius is charging right now on his website, shipped.  I wouldn't go by what websites are charging, as most of those are grossly overpriced and fishing for suckers.

I'm not sure if they're misspellings or not. I have them stored in another state, and I'm making arrangements to pick them up shortly, so I can let you know then. I definitely bought them in 2011, but I thought only the 1BTC coins were misprints.

No, there are misprints all across the 2011 range.  Here is a recent auction to give you a ballpark:

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=199384.0

Looks like DM90 maybe got 33 BTC for his, not clear from the thread as the posts are all his.  In any case, PM me if they have the series 1 misprint and maybe I'll make an offer.

I actually decided not to sell it (someone won an auction on ebay for $4000 but I decided not to sell it even after that), and am still keeping it. Pretty sure it goes for a lot more and will just hold onto it as part of my collection.

Unfortunately fake physical coins are extremely popular right now, they are all over localbitcoin and on the darknet for usually 40% of face value. I wouldn't buy any of them knowing they could easily be fake, I don't know what the coins are made of or anything but there is probably a way to tell for sure.

Seriously? Unfortunately I knew it would only be a matter of time until somebody started making fakes. I'm sure they're using the firstbits of actual coins, too, so no luck there. Casascius should put a serial number on each coin-thats truly the only way to protect from counterfeit.

In localbitcoins can you buy physical bitcoins?? Are you sure? Because I think this is not possible or rare to find them there. So you should not buy them there.
BTW If you buy them to a good rep seller you will have no problem.

An actual casascius coin has the phrase CASASCIUS encircling the entire coin, in tiny letters, on the hologram. You can only see them with a microscope, or if you have reaaaaaally great eyes and catch it in the light right.  It's quite beautiful, really.

I'm sure it is just as counterfeitable as the rest, but there's at least a chance that the production quality of the counterfeits isn't up to snuff and they skimped on this aspect.  Something to keep in mind, anyway.

Honestly, I have seen 2 So far. BOTH ordered from darknet by a close friend (Why would you even be going there to buy those anyway?) Specifically S.R., in Fact. Crap seller with no feedback, I told him not to do it.
Both looked like trash, looks like it was made in China on the floor of a basement. He wasn't even mad they were so cheap, he should of known. I would compare it to the fake gameboys they make and market it the same or the fake Iphone's and MP3 players that look nothing like the original , they even name it something different like 'GameMaster' or 'WeeU", blatant and fake.

Fact is, I don't know what this kid is talking about. There not popular, there not going around. In fact they are ridiculously easy to spot. Mike C. has done an excellent job creating these, and I cannot wait for more to come!!

If he in fact has one that is fake and looks identical. Please, Pics or it didn't happen. For now everything is OKAY.

NOTE: Deal with coins daily, never came across one fake myself.

How would a serial number be any more trustworthy than the firstbits?  Someone could put a matching serial number on a coin just as easily as they could put matching firstbits on a coin.

Hello, sorry for the delay, it took my longer than anticipated to obtain my coins (they were in a VERY safe place Smiley )

Of the four 25BTC coins, all four are misprints (assuming 'Casacius' on the hologram indicates a misspelling). I also have three 1BTC coins (which I forgot I had even purchased lol ) of which two are misprints.

I'm going to keep one of each, so as of now, I have three 25BTC misprints and one 1BTC misprint for sale. You will find pictures of the coins below. I am willing to take any steps necessary to ensure potential buyers of their authenticity, and will require escrow of a mutually agreed upon third party in the event a transaction is made.

Pictures will be uploaded shortly Smiley

EDIT: Not sure why one is upside down, will upload more pics upon request.
