Shacks Gold & Copyright Theft
Shacks Gold, actually David Shackleton of Locust Grove, VA, USA is yet another dishonest website owner / dealer who has used our copyright images without permission.

Copyright Theft is Dishonest - Can You Trust This Dealer?
Using other people's copyright images is illegal, it is dishonest, and it is unethical. Using the hard work of a fellow dealer to sell the same goods in competition with him demonstrates an extremely low standard of ethics. We would not recommend anybody to transact business with this person or company.

Who would have thought such an honest (although they do not claim this) reputable company would resort to stealing images from their competitors?

What's Wrong?
It is dishonest and unethical to pirate and steal other people's work by using high quality copyright photographs without the owner's consent. To do so in competition with them is doubly devious. We can partially understand why they do it; it is quick and easy (but then so is robbing people).
In this case David Shackleton, owner of "Shacks Gold" could not be bothered to take the time and trouble of photographing a gold coins, himself, or paying a professional photographer to do it for him, so decided it was quicker and easier to steal ours instead. They probably also thought we would not notice.
For these reasons, we conclude that David Shackleton, and Shacks Gold are dishonest and unethical, and we recommend anybody to avoid doing business with them. If they will cheat us by stealing our photographs, what would they do to you for your gold coins or stamps, or your money?
