Nice find, never seen before. Even Roscher doesn't mention a Men with trident.

They are the same group of coins. I think 3/4 is the same coin and was my coin as well. However, because I can't be sure, I have returned it to the dealer. They still haven't taken down the other copy in their current auction. If you made a fake coin report, I think that's probably enough. My coin may have been the original as the cracks were much larger on my coin and the level of detail better than the other coins. So I'm not going to make a fake coin report for mine (as I'm not sure).

This coin offered by the same seller is a copy, too.

It is supposed to be by P. Maenius Antiaticus, Crawford 249/1.

I marked the pit holes. Again, the obverse bears no unambiguous traces of forgery.

It is only the reverse which allows us to pass our deplorable verdict.

Here the evidence that this coin supposed to be by Q. Fabius Maximus (Crawford 265/1) is a fake:

Encircled in red: cast pits.

What is striking is the obverse: It bears no significant evidence of this coin being a cast at first sight, which makes this fake quite dangerous in my eyes.

Encircled in green: smut resembling patina, suggesting ancient origin.

It becomes evident that the forger used an almost perfect model to make his cast, making it very attractive at first sight, apart from the scratches and copied "signs of usage" suggesting authenticity.
