After 110+ posts you should know enough to provide size at least , and weight if possible!

    That said, I have my doubts about authenticity of this coin.

Hard to say... The fields look a little too flat... I'm not entirely sure... I know it's a rubbish answer, but this coin raises my spider sences... What do you think?

thanks for the answers. this coin was in a auction, but there is no diameter or weight for this I did not indicate.

the doubts come to me because it doesn't seem too defined almost like an ancient fusion. certainly the photos not help.

here are my doubts

thank you

If you are buying coins from any auction that doesn't give size or weight.... especially coins of this alleged quality...  Well... Let's just say the mantra here applies to the max...
    Know the coin or know the dealer..
     After some thought... I don't like the wear, and the coin shows no sign of actually being struck...
           I do not know the coin... And I do not know the dealer... So take this only as my opinion.
However, as it seems like you might be screening this coin in advance of purchase, I doubt if any experts that do know this coin will chime in.
    I might also be wrong about this also ..

Style is appropriate for what I call the "fine-style" branch mint of Claudius, a discovery of my own, so not recognized in von Kaenel and the other standard catalogues. The surfaces and deposits as shown by the new photograph of the obv. argue for authenticity, in my opinion.

Dear Pinga,

there are some rules here,
one of them is we do not vet coins
also it's about the coin and not the seller
do not post links they get lost in time

All the Best,
