Pretiest Fakes I have ever touched


Recommended Posts

These weren't mine. A local dealer had them for quite some time. He acquired a bunch of coins from the son or grandson of an old Greek dealer who was also known to make fakes and these came in as fakes.


I got to check these to see if they were real gold and lo and behold they were! So they got sold at the last NY show for someones personal black cabinet.


The real ones were issued in Egypt by the Ptolemys. I believe they were more like commemoratives (I suppose that's somehwhat obvious given the enormous cost of a real one when they were issued).
