""The Omega Man" is the name given to a counterfeit coin producer who signed his creations with a minute Greek letter omega in the claw of the eagle on the coin. He is believed to have created over 20,000 fake 1907 ultra high-relief US$20 gold Double Eagle coins worth over $300 Million at today's prices. His forgeries are of such high quality that collectors will still pay upwards of $1,000 for one, compared to a genuine coin's value of about $50,000 to $100,000. The identity of The Omega Man is still unknown. He also counterfeited other US gold coins, including a large quantity of $3 gold pieces, dated 1874, 1878 and 1882, with the 1882 being the most prevalent. Two of his counterfeit $10 gold pieces, the 1913-P and 1926-P, both have the "Omega" placed upside down within the upper loop of the 'R' of LIBERTY in the Indian's headdress. The quality of all of these counterfeits are extremely high and anyone considering purchasing a US gold coin of these dates should only purchase coins authenticated by one of the major coin grading services."

The Omega counterfeits were identified by ANACS back in the early 1970's and probably date from around that time. After a sudden influx of the number of high relief's being submitted. Suspicion at ANACS grew so they began close inspections of multiple pieces at the same time and discovered the forgery.

Omega-Man is a rather grandoise title for a forgerer
