Chart assembled by Lacedaemon, he wrote:

The weights of the coins seem to be in generally the right area for coins of this type, about 2.4g.

Sometime around January I gathered as many images of this type of coin as I could find to see if there were die links between them. I found links between 9 obverse dies and 10 reverse dies.

Iíll upload the die comparison image I made. I hope it makes sense to others. Itís arranged so coins with the same obverse die run horizontally and reverse dies run vertically. The coins on red backgrounds were sold by notorious fake sellers, the ones not on red backgrounds are mostly from dealers.

Every coin with a red background is an obvious fake because they are casts. The real question is are they casts of legitimate ancient coins and you are seeing die matches for that reason? I would love to know the source of all of the other images...
