Die_links~1.jpg
Lysimachos, Lysimachus, DrachmModern dies from Bulgaria, the style is off, they are pressed see the specific edge cracks and the weight of some if off. The one in middle has a weight of 5.02g which is much over weight standard of 4,3g for such a drachm, especially because some weight was lost due to artificial wear and this fake must have has a higher weight after pressing.
It seems like this symbols only exist on tetradrachms but not for drachms.

Fake Parthian DrachmThe coin is an impossible mule of a Sellwood type 84 (his Vologases IV) obverse and a Sellwood type 27 (his Mithradates II) reverse - types that appeared about 250 years apart. The surfaces of the coin are strangely flat and the weight given for this example (4.66 g) is too high. A couple of other examples with the same dies can be seen on the fakes page at http://parthika.fr/Faux.html (numbered 65 & 66).Jun 08, 2021
