Hi Guys

I found some fake reported on Parthia.com such as below:

http://parthia.com/coins/cgb_parthe.jpg

http://parthia.com/coins/pdc_13050.jpg

Why these 2 coins are fake?? I dont see any issue with it. I actually have coins in my collection look very similar to these so I am worried now that mine is fake too Sad

Please educate me so I learn how to come to conclusion on such coins that are fake??

If you are concerned, upload images of your coins and provide weight/size ?

Your genuine coins SHOULD look like these coins. These are well made fakes. In these small photos they look just like genuine coins.

Thanks guys. What makes me worry as Joe said is that these are very good fakes and virtually impossible for me to detect these types of fakes which look very genuine. Here is my coins.

Volgases III is 3.25 gram

Mithridates II is 3.7 gram
