The first is attributed by CNG
as an imitative
issue Islands off Thrace
. Le Rider
52; HGC 6
It is of a very fine style
for an imitative
issue and I bought it because it was better than most original issues I had
been perusing over the year. Now you have me wondering which it might be. The hercules
is certainly different than typical original issues. I love it either way, but now I have to look into this further.
As for the second......CNG once again. As for authenticity, well that is why I was eager to see if you were going to put up the collection
in Jambol. The obverse
is pretty crude compared to even the crudest/abstract portraits
. I bought it on the assumption that it was genuine and rather unique looking (and after checking numerous fake reports
) With that in mind, it would be nice to verify a die match to the specimen in Jambol ......assuming theirs is authentic..
I will watch for your first uploads
