Agree.

No flow lines, soft soapy surfaces, visible casting seem.

A cast fake of a Bulgarian replica.
I could not find this fake in fake reports but I have seen it before several times on ebay for sale by fake and replica sellers.
The style is wrong and the surface and weight is wrong implying that it is actually a cast fake of a fake and not a real fake.

You can buy a die match but this time a real pressed fake not cast here from replica seller with certificate stating it is a replica
