Roger's expertise is in Roman gold coins so one would imagine he'd know the difference. Mind you I wonder if the fakes are sometimes more important historically than the real thing. The real coins probably turn up more frequently than the copies one would imagine. :g43:

I think it's funny that the guy that has said he thinks it's a fake
said it was faked in the 15th cent. then therefore must have been placed
out in a field in the hope it got found years later, that makes no sense at all?
Also another coin most likely struck from the same die was found inside a coin hoard
that is now in Germany, so that kinda rules out the fake statement

I know one of the finders and they told me that the estimate is now 80,000plus
and they could expect to perhaps reach a six figure sum for the coin
I hope it does :g50:

I found a shield shaped weight, with a GR over Y( George 1st, York) counterstamp, according to my good friend Jim Halliday, this was proof that shield shaped weights carried on from medieval, postmedieval,and into Georgian times, a person who wrote a book on weights, declared it a forgery, As he declared shield shaped weights were, not used, by middle 16 C. Then he offered me cash for it!
