There is a doubtful coin of this kind currently being offered at auction by CNG.  The discussion here on Forum (going back to 2008) seems to confirm what a very knowledgeable dealer told me about 15 years ago.  He suggested that the dies (or cast) used to make the fake coins were based on the line drawing in Sabatier.  It may be that Sabatier saw a genuine coin but his drawing included inaccuracies.  The forger only had access to the Sabatier drawing and in that way the inaccuracies were transferred to the fake coins.  Stating the obvious - MIB lists only two examples: the Sabatier coin (whatever it is) and one in DO (no. 134).  Many thanks to the anonymous friend who reminded me just now of the possibility that fakes exist.
