Excellent news! I have my doubts as to whether this will discourage others from attempting similar frauds, but perhaps, with publicity of this case, it may cause counterfieters to think twice about their actions.

Good news. Now why can't they go after some of the notorious fakesters that have been at it for several years, and ones who have sold several hundred fake coins? There's one ebayer in particular I am thinking of, whose name sounds like Heater Hetrov, that could use a visit.
