Newly Acquired Hadrian Sestertius

(1/1)

Hello everyone.  I am a newly registered user who used to be a member here 15-20 years ago.  I'm recently getting back into the hobby.  I acquired this Hadrian coin recently off an eBay auction, it looks a little too good to be true, it was sold in an Ibercoin Auction in late 2020 for $440 Euro, I was able to get it on eBay for a good bit less.  Figured it was worth the risk and if it is not authentic I will just return it.   https://www.numisbids.com/n.php?p=lot&sid=4389&lot=1324
The image I used it from the Ibercoin auction, i can try to take some photos of the coin in hand if that would be helpful as well.  It appears to be a RIC 706 variant, I can not find a match on Wildwinds nor can i find a make on the fake coin list either though.

That portrait does not match. This is the best match I could find on OCRE
