One of the better fakes but the dies do not match the known genuine

specimens illustrated in RNS Journal No. 85, winter 2007–2008.



"oceanicvoyager" seems to have some issues with selling fakes:

Probably you think that you smartest and best specialist. Just to your knowledge, the coin is absolutelly real

Some problems with this “coin:”


Obverse –

Legend at lower right too close to bust

Hair treatment poorly done

Rays at top incorrectly done


Reverse –

Base of monument fails to reach edge of coin at lower left

Lower cross at top too long


And so on. It is a fake, period.
