Is this coin authentic or cast? I am contemplating that likely a cast as it looks soft and details missing. Also surface has bubbles.

This is an obvious fake. I am surprised no body can see the casting on this coin.

The sharpness of the details convinces me; I see no reason to condemn the coin as a cast, unless someone can point to an exact twin of the coin, which would of course force me to admit that it is probably cast.

James, why do you ask a question if you are so sure you know the answer ??

Dominic, I wanted to see what others say but I am convinced it is fake. the surface has so many bubbles. Also like to share fakes here for others to avoid it Smiley

In my eyes the "bubbles" are just light corrosion.

Curtis I posted few close up which shows extra metal and also the character around year has some recess around the legend that also is suspect.

1 and 2, I don't know, 3 looks exactly like ancient corrosion. The sharpness of the details and of the pitting looks authentic to me.

As stated, an exact twin will convince me I am wrong. I could find none such in Forvm's Fake Reports.

Ok Curtis. But how can you explain the extra metal? I know for fact that extra metal is a big concern. I know it could be as result of corroded die but that shows usually as a group of dots with special look but this is not the case for this coin.

I also believe that your coin is authentic and shows signs of natural corrosion. In addition there seems to be a flan crack possibly caused by stress during the striking process, a common occurrence on ancient coins.

It is not insulting, it is rude. It is an attempt to demand they continue to help you, when they may have no interest.

Using a second accounts to pretend to have someone supporting your position (James C2) is a banning offense. Goodbye.
