PLEASE SUBMIT FAKE COIN REPORTS (A POST HERE IS NOT A FAKE COIN REPORT)

(1/3) > >>

Joe Sermarini:
Please don't just post fake coins on the boards.  If you KNOW a coin is fake, submit a Fake Coin Report.  If you are unsure a coin is fake don't submit a report right away.  Post it for discussion, but if it is confirmed as fake, then please submit a Fake Coin Report.  

Also, if you post fake coin pics to the discussion board, please do not just link to an auction.  Please upload the pics.  Most auction pics are only retained for 90 days.  Sellers of fakes often delete the pic as soon as the auction is over.  This board will be more useful if fake coin pics are retained.  

The Fake Coin Reports are here:

https://www.forumancientcoins.com/fakes/index.php

There is a menu bar at the top of the page. The button takes you to the fake reports.

Once you have clicked the "Fake reports" button the same menu bar at the top of the page then has a few new buttons.  One of them is an "add a fake" button.  Click that and follow the instructions.

The optimal Fake Coin Report format follows:

1) The obverse and reverse photos must be cropped to a narrow border around the coin and stitched together into a single image.

2) Title:  Issuing Kingdom, City and/or Ruler (as applies) / Denomination / Reference number

3) Entries should include as much of the following information as possible:

Obv. legend / Obv. description or bust type / Rev. legend / Rev. description.

Reference number(s).

Date and mint for the original type.

Weight and diameter.

How the fake was made (cast, pressed, struck with modern dies, etc.)

How the fake has been identified as fake including features that identify it as cast or pressed, style irregularities, fabric irregularities, epigraphic irregularities, known duplicates, publication as a fake, sale by a listed notorious fraud seller, etc., as applicable.

If the seller is not on the notorious fraud list do not name them in a fake coin report.
  
Feel free to submit any fake reports even if you do not have all the information in the ideal list above.  Please include as much information as you have. Don't worry if it isn't complete. Volunteers will often add additional information and corrections to reports that have been submitted by others.

If you know more about an existing reported coin, please add a comment to the report.

ROMA:
I've got some fakes I can add to the lists but where do i click to submit them?

maridvnvm:
At the top of the page are some menus. The button takes you to the fake reports. I would recommend that you have a good look around them and please feel free to submit any fake reports that you have with as much information as you have. Don't worry if it isn't complete. I always try and update any partial submissions with any missing details e.g. legends, references etc.
Regards,
Martin

Once you have clicked the "Fake reports" button the same tool bar at the top of the page then has a few new buttons.  One of them is an "add a fake" button.  Click that, follow the instructions and away you go.
