Herewith nominated !!

I sent him a message via ebay informing him that all the would-be coin objects that he
was offering were fakes, most of them from known fake dies.
I received three replies from him via the ebay messaging system. The spelling mistakes
are his, not mine.

Message 1:
Quote
Your informatiom is absoluty wrong. I have sold some coins in lond
-angemanol

I think he meant that by selling these objects to someone in London, this somehow
authenticated them. His second message was also equally interrupted.

Message 3
Quote
Your information is wrong. How can you say anithing about my coins? Did you
see any of them? Someone who buy from me told you that the coin is fake?
And who the hall are you? An expert? If you have evidence, please, show it.
In other way I will forward your messeage to my lawyers to take legal
action.
-angemanol

Who the hall am I ? Well I don't work at the Z7 Concert hall any more. I explained
to him that he can compare the small details of the objects he is selling to
other examples on FAC's fake gallery as well as on forgerynetwork and he will
find identical examples (although he may not realise that coins were hand struck
so usually differently places, and also not realise that there were different genuine
dies).
I suggested he compare the "look" of the heads to those on genuine coins on
wildwinds, acsearch and other databases. I also told him to go ahead and contact
his lawyer but to think about it first, as he may stir up a wasps' nest which could
result in him being prosecuted for fraud...

Curtis, thank you very much for this overview. I found that thread started by Rupert back in 2008 -  http://www.forumancientcoins.com/board/index.php?topic=45554.0 There are many interesting insights and further facts from you and Rupert about this strange issue. What is interesting is that all the dies from Rupert's thread and mine are different - so this FEL TEM issue was massive enough, and all early scholars overlooked it, as it looked like another die cutter's mistake.

Yes, sometimes a wheel is reinvented (ie my personal re-discovery of FEL TEM in this very instance laugh Grin Grin). But reinvented wheel is always better than no wheel at all Grin.

Thank you, Curtis - have a nice weekend!

Cheers,

Z.

Further coins with FEL TEM, confirming that this was an intentional variety:

Denarii of Marcus shown by Rupert on Forvm, in my collection, and two others in Berk stock and on eBay, that I have recorded in my BMC.

Two sestertii of L. Verus quoted by Szaivert in his Marcus-Commodus monograph, and a dupondius of L. Verus in my collection.

I don't know which attribution is correct, but it seems clear what Sear is saying. 

He himself attributes the coin to Antioch, following DO 150 which he cites without annotation.

He also cites the Paris example, BN 18, noting however that in the Paris catalogue this coin is attributed to Constantinople.
